Among the important scientific developments of the 20th century is the explosive growth in statistical reasoning and methods for application to studies of human health. Examples include developments in likelihood methods for inference epidemiologic statistics clinical trials survival analysis and statistical genetics. Substantive problems in public health and biomedical research have fueled the development of statistical methods which in turn have improved our ability to draw valid inferences from data. The continued growth of biostatistics as a field has motivated Oxford University Press in association with the Biometrika Trust to create a new journal entitled Biostatistics to be published quarterly beginning in April 2000.
