Bayesian Analysis of Case-Control Studies Book uri icon


  • Case-control studies are dominant tools in epidemiologic research and consequently, there is a substantial volume of frequentist literature on different aspects of case-control studies. The Bayesian framework for case-control studies offer possibilities for flexible, hierarchical modeling that may be necessary in many contexts but as of yet, the Bayesian pathways remain relatively less explored. The present article reviews existing Bayesian work for analyzing case-control data, some recent advancements and possibilities for future research. © 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
