This manual was prepared largely from notes on lectures given by the authors. Many of the concepts introduced in the manual are not new and can be found in most standard textbooks on epidemiology, economics and statistics. The authors wish to acknowledge in particular the contribution of Schwabe, Riemann and Franti's "Epidemiology in Veterinary Practice", Leech and Sellers' "Statistical Epidemiology in Veterinary Science" and Gittinger's "Economic Analysis of Agricultural Projects", which provided inspiration for certain parts of this manual.
