The formula for an odds is, therefore, of the form P divided by 1ϪP, where P denotes the probability of the event of interest. Presentation: VII. 75, or one-third. 75 3 An odds of one-third can be interpreted to mean that the probability of the event occurring is one-third the probability of the event not occurring. Alternatively, we can state that the odds are 3 to 1 that the event will not happen. 1 ← event occurs 3 ← event does not occur 3 to 1 event will not happen The expression P(X) divided by 1ϪP(X) has essentially the same interpretation as P over 1ϪP, which ignores X.

That is, an adjusted odds ratio can be obtained by exponentiating the coefficient of a (0, 1) variable in the model. In our example, that variable is CAT, and the other two variables, AGE and ECG, are the ones for which we adjusted. adjusted Xi(0, 1): adj. ROR = e␤i controlling for other X’s EXAMPLE logit P( X) = α + β1CAT + β2 AGE + β3 ECG adjusted ECG (0, 1): adj. ROR = e␤3 controlling for CAT and AGE SUMMARY X i is (0, 1) : ROR = eβ i General OR formula : k ROR = e i=∑1 β i ( X1i − X 0 i ) More generally, if the variable of interest is Xi, a (0, 1) variable, then e to the ␤i, where ␤i is the coefficient of Xi, gives an adjusted odds ratio involving the effect of Xi adjusted or controlling for the remaining X variables in the model.

Compute and interpret the estimated risk ratio that compares the risk of a 40-year-old male smoker to a 40-year-old male nonsmoker, both of whom have CHOL=200 and OCC=1. 28. Would the risk ratio computation of Question 27 have been appropriate if the study design had been either cross-sectional or case-control? Explain. 29.
