We then expect to observe four successes for every one failure. When odds = 1/4, a failure is four times as likely as a success. We then expect to observe one success for every four failures. 8. 3 THE ODDS RATIO In 2 × 2 tables, within row 1 the odds of success are odds1 = π1 /(1 − π1 ), and within row 2 the odds of success equal odds2 = π2 /(1 − π2 ). 3) is the odds ratio. Whereas the relative risk is a ratio of two probabilities, the odds ratio θ is a ratio of two odds. 1 Properties of the Odds Ratio The odds ratio can equal any nonnegative number.

Suppose Y is a binomial variate, and let p = Y /n. a. √ Based on the binomial standard deviation for Y , show that σ (p) = [π(1 − π)/n].

0. 7. The log odds ratio is symmetric about zero, in the sense that reversing rows or reversing columns changes its sign. 7, represent the same strength of association. Doubling a log odds ratio corresponds to squaring an odds ratio. 25. ˆ has a less skewed sampling distribution that is The sample log odds ratio, log θ, bell-shaped. Its approximating normal distribution has a mean of log θ and a standard error of SE = 1 1 1 1 + + + n11 n12 n21 n22 The SE decreases as the cell counts increase. 3 THE ODDS RATIO ˆ it is better Because the sampling distribution is closer to normality for log θˆ than θ, to construct confidence intervals for log θ.
