Abstract

Bias is inherent in epidemiology, and researchers go to great lengths to avoid introducing bias into their studies. However, some bias is inevitable, and bias due to selection is particularly common. We discuss ways to identify bias and how authors have approached removing or adjusting for bias using statistical methods. © Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2012.
