(HP67) Epidemiologic Analysis with a Programmable Calculator
An extract from the PREFACE of Epidemiologic Analysis with a Programmable Calculator, U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, EDUCATION and WELFARE, Public Health Service, NIH Publication No. 791649, June 1979.
… Our purpose in writing this book is to present a collection of pocket calculator programs developed to handle the range of analyses that most epidemiologists face routinely. The programs are accompanied by stepbystep descriptions of their use and examples taken from epidemiologic studies … Today programmable pocket calculators are available which are essentially lowpriced computers that can be programmed to handle nearly all calculations routinely encountered in epidemiologic analysis … The epidemiologic programs developed and presented here are for a particular calculator, the HewlettPackard 67 (HP67)… … . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . C O N T E N T S . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . CASECONTROL STUDIES Program 1: Odds ratio estimation and testing (7 or fewer 2 x 2 tables) Program 2: Odds ratio estimation and testing (unlimited number of 2 x 2 tables) Program 3: Mantelextension test and standardized risk ratios for 2 x R tables FOLLOWUP (COHORT) STUDIES Program 4: Estimation and testing for followup data with count denominators (6 or fewer 2 x 2 tables) Program 5: Estimation and testing for followup data with count denominators (unlimited number of 2 x 2 tables) Program 6: Estimation and testing for followup data with persontime denominators (6 or fewer strata) see ps below for clarification Program 7: Estimation and testing for followup data with persontime denominators (unlimited number of strata) MATCHED CASECONTROL STUDIES Program 8: Casecontrol matched analysis Program 9: Casecontrol matched analysis with variable matching ratio Program 10: Casecontrol matched pair analysis for 3 exposure levels EXACT TESTING AND ESTIMATION Program 11: Exact testing and interval estimation for the odds ratio in a 2 x 2 table Program 12: Exact testing and interval estimation for the incidence density ratio in a single table Program 13: Exact pvalue for a Poisson variate Program 14: Exact confidence limits for an SMR Program 15: Exact (and approximate) confidence limits for a proportion ADDITIONAL ANALYSES AND CALCULATIONS Program 16 Study size and power Program 17 Pvalue from normal deviate Program 18 Pvalue from chisquare Program 19 Linear trend analysis Program 20 Seasonal analysis of monthly frequencies Program 21 Logistic curve fit Program 22 Survival and relative survival curves … BEST! SlideRule ps: pages 65  72 are omitted in the HathiTrust archive (reason unknown): this includes part of program 4, all of program 5 & part of program 6: however, my post to the 41 library has a link for the new edition which includes the missing pages as well a listings in FOCAL.
