- Stats Calculator from University of Toronto's Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine. It includes the following options:
- Diagnostic Test - calculates the Sensitivity, Specificity, PV+, PV-, LR+, and LR-
- Prospective Study - calculates the Relative Risk (RR), Absolute Relative Risk (ARR), and Number Needed to Treat (NNT)
- Case-control Study - calculates the Odds Ratio (OR)
- Randomized Control Trial (RCT) - calculates the Relative Risk Reduction (RRR), ARR, and NNT
- BrightStat.com -- Free cloud-based statistical analysis. (Requires you to create an account.)
- John Pezzullo's Interactive Statistical Calculation Pages. This is a great site with lots of links to good online calculators.
- GraphPad's QuickCalcs page--another site with some very nice calculators.
- StatTools. A collection of statistical programs used in clinical research and
- OpenEpi -- Open Source Epidemiologic Statistics for Public Health.
- EpiTools -- Epidemiological calculators provided by the good folks at AusVet Animal Health Services. (Good on ya, mates!)
- Random number generators
- RANDOM.ORG - "RANDOM.ORG offers true random numbers to anyone on the Internet. The randomness comes from atmospheric noise, which for many purposes is better than the pseudo-random number algorithms typically used in computer programs."
- Jerry Dallal's Randomization Page. Jerry is a Senior Scientist & Chief of the Biostatistics Unit at the USDA Jean Mayer Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, and also a Professor in the Gerald J & Dorothy R Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. His CV can be seen here. (See also his Little Handbook of Statistical Practice.)

Originally published from 1999 through 2008 as an electronic epidemiology newsletter by the Epidemiologic Research and Information Center (ERIC) at the Durham Veterans Administration Medical Center in conjunction with the Department of Epidemiology at UNC's Gillings School of Global Public Health.
- Principles of Infectious Disease Epidemiology - an online course from the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services.

- Standardization of Rates. This nice document (written by Namrata Bains) arose from discussions held by the Core Indicators Work Group in the Core Indicators for Public Health in Ontario project.
- Robert Wolfe's notes on confounding and effect modification. [Unfortunately, the old link no longer works. I'm trying to find out if these excellent notes are still online somewhere.]
- Confounding, Stratification and Multivariate Analysis Made Simple -- a presentation by Dr. K. J. Jager, Department of Medical Informatics, Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. [Note that Dr. Jager uses multivariate here to mean multiple explanatory variables, not multiple outcome variables.]
- Meta-analysis resources. "Resources and networking for those who conduct or interpret meta-analyses related to any phenomenon that is gauged in multiple studies."
- The Magnificent ROC. This site has a nice review of ROC curves. It includes java applet demos, which may require you to add the site to your Java Exception Site List.
