case control study
observational. choose ppl who have (cases) or don;t (controls) and collect info on risk factors
cohort study
choose ppl who do, and don't have a given risk factor. See what happens
how are results for cohort study presented
relative risk
results for case control study are presented
odd ratios
drawback for case control
recall bias
weakness in cohort
selection bias
late look bias
information gathered at inappropriate time
prevalence ? incidence for chronic dz
prevalence ? incidence for acute dz
formula for prevalence
prevalence=incidents x dz duration
formula for sensitivity
formula specificity
how are sensitivity/spec in relation to predictive value
sensit/spec looks at ppl w or w/o dz, predictive value looks at ppl w + or - test
in words formula for sensitivty
taking all ppl w dz, how many (%) have a positive test
in words formula for specif
taking all the ppl w/o dz, how many (%) had a negative test
positive predictive value-in words to the pt
if positive test, how likely is it the pt actually has the dz
PPV formula in words
number ppl w dz divided by number of ppl who tested +
NPV-in words to pt
if had neg test, how likely you don't have dz
NPV formula in words
number of ppl w/o dz divided by number ppl who tested -
NPV formula
PPV formula
how does prevalence effect PPV
higher prevalence, the higher the PPV
decline in prevalence, the higher the NPV
T/F Unlike sensitivity and specificity, predictive values depend on incidence
odd ratio in words
number w dz / number w/o dz
divided by odds in other grp
or odds of having dz if you were in exposed grp vs. unexposed group
when does odds ratio ~ relative risk
if low prevalence
formula odds ratio
A/B / C/D

true pos/false pos / true neg/false neg
formula relative risk in words
number w dz/ all who tested positive
number w/o dz/all who tested -
formula relative risk
a/(a+b) / c/(c+d)
how does random error effect test
reduces precision
how does systematic error effect test
reduces accuracy
positive skew on curve
tail is on the up side, so most ppl were under what was reported as avg
negative skew on curve
tail is on the down side, the majority were higher than what was reported as avg
type I error
saying there is a diff when there is NONE
type II error
saying there's no difference when there's REALLY A DIFFERENCE
in fancy words type I error
to mistakenly accept the experimental hypothesis and reject the null hypothesis
probability that you made a type II error (saying there's no difference when there's REALLY A DIFFERENCE)
p value
probability of making a type I error
(saying there's a diff, when there is NONE)
you saw a difference that didn't exist
probability of being right that there IS a difference
(saying there is a difference and there IS)
formula for power
t test
diff bw means of 2 grps
diff bw means 3 or greater tests
gamma squared
diff bw 2 or more percentages of categorical outcomes
how can you increase the power of your test
increase sample size
=std deviation/ (sq root of N)
SEM ? std deviation
how does SEM vary
decreases as n increases
what percentage are within 1 std dev? 2? 3?
68%, 95%, 99.7%
what is the formula for confidence interval
CI=mean +/- 1.96 SEM

dereliction, damage, direct
