The statistics used in epidemiology are based on general statistics. Epidemiological studies are often based on cases where the response variable is infection or not infection. Statistical models for proportions, with a binomial (or Bernoulli) error distribution (logistic regression) are suited for this kind of studies and will be a central issue. Some specific epidemiological examples and methods will be used.
