Statistics and Health

Professor Stephen Senn FRSE
Public Research Centre for Health, Luxembourg

Statistical thinking lies at the heart of many decisions about medical care, from allocating resources for health, to determining which drugs to licence, to cause-and-effect in relation to disease.

Statistical methods, and reasoning with probability, are essential to making rational decisions in medicine when we are faced with choices that have an impact on our health.
