Table 4 Lexpit regression analysis of the EAGLE Study

From: A regression model for risk difference estimation in population-based case–control studies clarifies gender differences in lung cancer risk of smokers and never smokers

Factor 3-year risk difference (per 100,000) 95% confidence interval Residual odds ratio 95% confidence interval
Female 4.6 (−1.8, 11.0)   
Pack-years (per 10 yrs) 52.9 (31.9, 73.8)   
Female x Pack-years −39.3 (−70.1, -8.6)   
Age – 60a    1.12 (1.10, 1.13)
Education – 1b    0.69 (0.60, 0.80)
High-risk occupationc    1.01 (0.72, 1.41)
Occupational ETS    1.54 (0.72, 1.41)
Cigars, pipes, cigarillos    1.15 (0.86, 1.53)
Average percent inhaled    2.19 (1.99, 2.41)
Years since quitting    0.94 (0.93, 0.95)
  1. ETS = Environmental tobacco smoke.
  2. a Centered at 60 years.
  3. b Centered at 1, corresponding to elementary school.
  4. c List A/B high-risk occupation for lung cancer.
