Association Index: measures of association

-- Index of measured relationship of risk factor (RF) and disease (Dx)

表示危險因子與疾病間的相關程度之指標

- Analytic epidemiology (epi)
- Cohort study (prospective)
- Fixed cohort
- Dynamic cohort

- Case-control study (retrospective)

- Cohort study (prospective)
- Major aims in analytic epi
- verify the relationship of RF & Dx

- Absolute risk
- Attribute risk
- Relative risk
- Risk ratios (RR)
- Odds ratios (OR)

- Risk Difference

- Magnitude of risk of a disease in a population
- Descriptive unit of magnitude of risk:
- Rate: incldence, prevalence, morbidity, mortality…

- Descriptive unit of magnitude of risk:
- Limitation:
- Absolute risk is not comparative.
- Absolute risk does not allow one to establish association between exposure and disease

Status 或 event 的測量指標

* Odds

常見的流行病學測量指標

- Definition:
- 某段觀察時間內，單位時間中所有可能發生某特定事件的人發生該事件的率。
I：新病例數

P：觀察人數（有可能發生者才算）

T：觀察期間

- 某段觀察時間內，單位時間中所有可能發生某特定事件的人發生該事件的率。

2 / ( 7 + 2 + 4.5 + 3 + 6 ) = 2 / 22.5 = 0.089 / 年

- Definition:
- 某世代族群或某固定族群的人，經過某段觀察時間後，發生某事件﹙疾病﹚的人口佔該世代族群人口總數的百分比。
- 該事件﹙疾病﹚的發生情形，用以推估在族群中的任一人發生該事件或得該疾病的機率，也稱危險度﹙risk﹚。
- 當疾病或事件的發生機率很小時，累積發生率幾乎可等於發生率乘以年齡層距之總和。
- 2/（5-2/2）= 0.5

Hypothetical testing

- In a prospective study, 8000 persons, including 3000 hypertensive and 5000 normtensive patients, were followed for 10 years. There were 84 and 87 CHD cases in hypertensive and normtensive persons, respectively.
- RR=?

Ex-1

CI in exposed (HT) patients = 84/3000 = 28.0

CI in non-exposed (non-HT) patients = 87/5000 = 17.4

Relative risk = 28.0/17.4 = 1.61

Why does

Odds Ratio represent Relative Risk ?

If case & control from fixed cohort

- Assumption:
- Case and control are random sample from diseased & non-diseased population (representative)
- Probability (ex CI) is very small (rare disease)

L1 + L0 = L

If case & control from dynamic cohort

- Assumption:
- Case and control are random sample from diseased & non-diseased population (representative)
- Density sampling (time-matching)

If t0=t1,

Odds(Ex)=(A/N1)

Odds(nonEx)=(C/N0)

Odds Ratio

= (A/N1)/ (C/N0)

= (A/L1)/ (C/L0) = RRID

- Try to determine the relationship between two random variablesX and Y
- Y ~ continuous variables ~ N(u,var)
- X ~ continuous variables usually ~ N(u,var)

- Y= a+bXi+e
- Interpretation of intercept & slope (coefficient).
- Obtain RDCI in cohort study

- Try to determine the relationship between risk factors Xi and disease probability(Y)
- Y ~ binary variables ~ B(p)
- Y = logit P =log (P/1-P)
- P/(1-P) ~ disease odds (log odds)

- Odds ratios = P1q0 / p0q1
- Log (odds) = logit P1– logit P0 = beta
- Logit P0 = alpha

- Y ~ binary variables ~ B(p)

- Y = logit P = Exp (a+bXi+e)
- Log transform of disease probability in each risk category is expressed as a linear function of regression
- P1 =exp(a+b)/1+exp(a+b)
- P0 =exp(a)/1+exp(a)

- The exposure risk(X) to disease risk(Y) fit the multiplicative hypothesis.
- Logit P(x1,x2) = a+b1x1+b2x2+rx1x2
- b1 = log (r10)
- b2 = log (r01)
- r = log (r11/r10r01)
= logit p11-logit p10- logit p01+logit p00

- Logit P(x1,x2) = a+b1x1+b2x2+rx1x2
- Obtain ORCI in cohort study, and OR in case-control study

- Try to determine the relationship of between risk factors Xi and disease probability(Y) under considering time to event
- Y~binary (dead/alive) ~ B(p)
- All risk factors are assumed to be constant over time
- hi(t) = Exp (a+bXi+e) h0 (t)
- h0 (t): baseline hazard function; ID0
- hi (t): hazard function in exposed group; IDi

- Obtain RRID in cohort study (hazard ratio)

Cohort studies may be classified according to both the

type of data that are collected at baseline and the nature of the

eventual outcome measure. The combination determines the

appropriate strategy for analysis. Below we consider four

common combinations, mention the usual method of analysis,

and give an example of each. (Table 14.2)

Adjusted rate -Standardization

透過調整人口結構的不同,用以比較人口組成不同的團體比率

Status 或 event 的測量指標

- 當將兩個族群的率拿來加以比較時，常因其各自的加權量不同而有所差異，造成解釋上的困難
- 標準化比率是為了比較兩個以上團體的比率所推算出來的假想總合比率。
- 用途:
- 比較人口組成不同的團體比率。
- 進行國際比較
方法:
