 Synonyms & Historicals
Epidemiology .
Field of medicine concerned with the determination of causes, incidence, and characteristic behavior of disease outbreaks affecting human populations. It includes the interrelationships of host, agent, and environment as related to the distribution and control of disease. .
/epidemiology .
/endemics .
/epidemics .
/frequency .
/incidence .
/morbidity .
/occurrence .
/outbreaks .
/prevalence .
/surveillance .
Used with human and veterinary diseases for the distribution of disease, factors which cause disease, and the attributes of disease in defined populations; includes incidence, frequency, prevalence, endemic and epidemic outbreaks; also surveys and estimates of morbidity in geographic areas and in specified populations. Used also with geographical headings for the location of epidemiologic aspects of a disease. Excludes mortality for which "mortality" is used. .
Epidemiologists .
Epidemiologist .
Qualified medical professionals who study the causes, incidence, and characteristic behavior of disease outbreaks or other health-related conditions and determine the interrelationships of hosts, agents, and environment related to the distribution and control of diseases. .
Molecular Epidemiology .
Genetic Epidemiology .
Epidemiologies, Genetic .
Epidemiologies, Molecular .
Epidemiology, Genetic .
Genetic Epidemiologies .
Molecular Epidemiologies .
Epidemiology, Molecular .
The application of molecular biology to the answering of epidemiological questions. The examination of patterns of changes in DNA to implicate particular carcinogens and the use of molecular markers to predict which individuals are at highest risk for a disease are common examples. .

Bias (Epidemiology) .
Any deviation of results or inferences from the truth, or processes leading to such deviation. Bias can result from several sources: one-sided or systematic variations in measurement from the true value (systematic error); flaws in study design; deviation of inferences, interpretations, or analyses based on flawed data or data collection; etc. There is no sense of prejudice or subjectivity implied in the assessment of bias under these conditions. .
Disaster Epidemiology .
The medical discipline that studies the influence of such factors as the life style, biological constitution and other personal or social determinants on the incidence and distribution of diseases as it concerns disasters (Material II - IDNDR, 1992) .
Uses of Epidemiology .
Practical use of knowledge originated from epidemiological studies dealing identification and investigation of health problems, monitoring the health status of a population, setting priorities in health and/or evaluation of interventions, programs and services results. .
Analytical Epidemiology .
Analytical Studies .
Analytic Studies .
Analytic Epidemiology .
Epidemiology, Analytical .
Field of Epidemiology whose objective is to test association hypotheses and causal relationships. .
