Abstract

With the present world-wide emphasis on malaria eradication, it is highly important that workers involved in malaria research and control programs follow scientific methods free of personal bias and that they utilize standard procedures in experimental design and analysis. Satya Swaroop's book will be a real help to serious workers who wish to meet these standards. It is not a substitute for standard textbooks on statistics on malariometry but rather a guide to assist malariologists in adopting and utilizing appropriate statistical techniques and in establishing more effective collaboration with their statistical coworkers.

The book outlines the basic approaches for planning malaria investigations and for collecting, recording, tabulating, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from the data obtained. It gives a good introduction to statistical concepts, terminology, and methodology. Examples used cover a wide variety of the special problems involved in malaria eradication, including health and vital statistics, chemotherapy, and evaluation of insecticide resistance in anopheline vectors.
