Epidemiology has been the cornerstone of public health research for decades and has come even more to the center of health research and public awareness during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, it is of utmost importance that epidemiological studies investigating issues relevant to public health are carried out by applying correct and state-of-the-art statistical and epidemiological methods to ensure the validity of scientific results and relevance of resulting public health interventions.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide a collection of articles that describe, evaluate, or discuss modern statistical and epidemiological methods relevant to research in public health with the aim of evolving the area toward an even higher degree of epidemiological and statistical rigor. Articles providing theoretical considerations, practical applications, best practice recommendations, and pedagogical advice are welcome.
