Dictionary making never ends because languages are always changing. This English-language dictionary of epidemiology and many related fields such as biostatistics, infectious disease control, health promotion, genetics, clinical epidemiology, health economics also contains brief essays and discussions of the provenance of important terms. Sponsored by the International Epidemiological Association, the dictionary represents the consensus of epidemiologists in many different countries. All the definitions were reviewed repeatedly by an international network of contributors from every major branch of epidemiology. The fourth edition contains over 150 new entries and substantial revisions of about the same number of definitions, plus 12 new illustrations. Many of the new terms relate to methods used in environmental and clinical epidemiology.
