  • David G. Kleinbaum
Part of the Statistics in the Health sciences book series (SBH)


In this chapter, the E, V, W model is extended to consider other coding schemes for a single exposure variable, including ordinal and interval exposures. The model is further extended to allow for several exposure variables. The formula for the odds ratio is provided for each extension, and examples are used to illustrate the formula.
