This chapter considers some new directions that are emerging as important tools for the analysis of epidemiological data and which offer extensions to the approaches used in earlier chapters of this text. Some of these methods have been better developed than others, but they are active areas of research that should ultimately provide essential tools to the analytic epidemiologist.

Keywords: classification trees; regression trees; regression; splines; collinearity
