About this book

Quantitative epidemiology provides the principles and tools for a better understanding of disease occurrence and spread in (animal) populations, and in particular, diseases with a multifactoral etiology. This book is based upon the findings from a series of workshops and clinics where theory and practical issues concerning quantitative epidemiological issues were addressed. It is not intended as a textbook, but as an aid to self-training. The book contains detailed examples from the field, and answers are given to questions.
