    Special Issue on Medical Studies in Statistics

    Medical statistics deals with applications of statistics to medicine and the health sciences, including epidemiology, public health, forensic medicine, and clinical research. Medical statistics has been a recognized branch of statistics in the UK for more than 40 years but the term does not appear to have come into general use in North America, where the wider term 'biostatistics' is more commonly used. However, "biostatistics" more commonly connotes all applications of statistics to biology.

    Constantly newer and newer statistical ratios are being developed to help measure the changing patterns of various disease and health conditions. Addition of HIV health indicators, counting radiation doses, forensic criminal investigation ratios are among the new ones. As such Medical Statistics remains a constantly changing field.
