Item description for Statistical Methods in Cancer Research: The Analysis of Case-control Studies Vol 1 (International Agency for Research on Cancer Scientific Publications) by Norman E. Breslow, Nicholas E. Day & International Agency for Research on Cancer...
The case-control method of determining human cancer causation has developed in the last 20 years as the major epidemiological approach to identify risk factors. Now in paperback, this volume brings together the methods available for analyzing case-control data, and makes them accessible to the practicing epidemiologist and statistician. It expounds both the statistical models and theory behind the methods, and the practical steps of applying them to specific sets of data. All the methods are illustrated with examples from real studies, with an emphasis on the added insight into the data that different approaches can bring.

Everything you need to know on case-control studies Aug 23, 2004
This is a nicely written book by two heavyweights. It has a complete coverage of risk and odds ratios, confounding, the Mantel-Haenszel procedure, and conditional and unconditional logistic regression.
Readers beware! The book is fairly technical and quite authoritative. It is aimed at more sophisticated readers, although I do believe that even starters could learn one or two things from it (to say the least). Too often, great books like this are very negatively reviewed by beginners who should be looking elsewhere for more elementary material.
All in all, an invaluable book for both epidemiologists and biostatisticians!
