In epidemiologic studies, analysis of the relationship between exposure intensity and risk is complicated by the fact that exposures often take place over extended periods, during which intensities can vary substantially. To relate exposure to outcome, it is necessary to combine information about duration, intensity and timing into a summary measure of exposure. If the aim of the exposure-response analysis is to estimate the risk associated with differing exposure intensities, the results… CONTINUE READING
