Epidemiologic data for case-control studies are often summarized into K 2 x 2 tables. Given a fixed number of cases and controls, the degree of sparseness in the data depends on the number of strata, K. The effect of increasing stratification on size and power of seven tests of homogeneity of the odds ratio is studied using Monte Carlo methods. In all the designs considered here, the numbers of cases and controls per stratum are the same. Considering both size and power in non-sparse-data… CONTINUE READING
