There are perhaps two reasons for this: each of us, by virtue of his particular training, experience, wisdom or attention to detail, believes himself to possess a superior degree of personal skill in choosing and applying the proper remedy; and each patient is considered so variable, so utterly unique

The aim of this guide is to provide such people with nontechnical definitions of many such terms. Consequently, no mathematical nomenclature or formulae are used in the definitions.

Cambridge Core - Epidemiology Public Health and Medical Statistics - Medical Statistics from A to Z - by B. Everitt’s book is very good as a first point of reference. In some cases, the entries in this book would be all that is required to help a clinician or medical student understand some of the terminology or graphs in a journal paper. Source: Epidemiology and Infection. I recommend this book as a useful reference text that provides a user-friendly guide on terminology employed in the field of medical statistics.

From 'Abcissa' to 'Zygosity determination' - this accessible introduction to the terminology of medical statistics describes more than 1500 terms all clearly explained, illustrated and defined in non-technical language, without any mathematical formulae! With the majority of terms revised and updated and the addition of more than 100 brand new definitions, this new edition will enable medical students to quickly grasp the meaning of any of the statistical terms they encounter when reading the medical literature. Furthermore, annotated comments are used judiciously to warn the unwary of some of the common pitfalls that accompany some cherished biomedical statistical techniques. Wherever possible, the definitions are supplemented with a reference to further reading where the reader may gain a deeper insight, so whilst the definitions are easily disgestible, they also provide a stepping stone to a more sophisticated comprehension. Statistical terminology can be quite bewildering for clinicians: this guide will be a lifesaver.
