Bias, confounding, and effect modification

Chapter

Abstract

  • Bias, jaconfounding, and random variation/chance are the reasons for a non-causal association between an exposure and outcome. This chapter will define and discuss these concepts so that they may be appropriately considered whenever one is interpreting the data from a study. © Springer Science + Business Media B.V. 2008.
