Essentials of Public Health Research MethodsAuthors: Richard A. Crosby, Laura F. Salazar

Using the circular model of public health research as an overarching framework, Essentials of Public Health Research Methods provides a clear, time-tested methodology that leads students step-by-step through the research process – from framing the questions, identifying the study design and choosing methodology to collecting and analyzing data, and disseminating research findings.
