Staffan E. Norell, Anders Ahlbom, +5 authors K L Wiechel. American journal of epidemiology. In a population-based case-control study carried out in Sweden in 1982-1984, the authors examined the association of pancreatic cancer with several dietary factors, coffee, alcohol, and tobacco.

Through a combination of descriptive text and exercises, this study presents a common framework for the planning and critical evaluation of epidemiological studies. It describes the principal sources of error in study design, their impact on the results, and the research strategies used to prevent or control different kinds of errors. These strategies are the building blocks used in the design of studies with the overall objective of obtaining accurate results with limited resources. They are illustrated throughout by examples and exercises. The work aims to provide the reader with a clear understanding of the research strategies used in experimental and non-experimental studies.

I was looking for good problems to use as testing material. Some of the problems were good. Others were less inspiring.
Audience: This book is suitable for discussion of epidemiological principles or critical evaluation for students and participants at any level of epidemiology expertise, whether beginning or advanced, as led by an experienced instructor. The result will be a development of epidemiological judgment and intuition, rather than of achieving skill in completing more technical problems. Features: The book has been produced in an attractive, easy-to-use format. The problems are based on published research, and the references are included with the answers, providing further opportunities for teaching. This is a very useful book, and I am looking forward to using it for teaching and discussion groups. The first chapter israther overambitious in attempting to present too detailed a description of epidemiological methodology in 40 pages. In places, a better use of the English idiom would have made this chapter easier to read. However, this does not detract from the main aim of this book, which is that of providing problems for discussion. I recommend the book highly for this purpose. The bulk of this book consists of seven chapters with epidemiological problems for discussion in a group setting. Six of these chapters start with a short introduction to epidemiological methodology followed by 30 short problems and 10 general questions. Another chapter contains longer problems also suitable for group discussion. The first chapter of the book provides a concise, quite detailed summary of epidemiological methods, and the last chapter has more than 100 pages of answers to all the problems listed earlier. The author found that there was a gap between epidemiological principles presented in textbooks and their application in the planning and critical evaluation of epidemiological studies. In this book, the author successfully provides the means to bridge this gap through class discussions.
