Holland (1989, Biometrics 45, 1009-1016) gave simple formulas for an "adjusted" risk difference based on the Mantel-Haenszel odds ratio estimator and its variance. This "adjusted" risk difference is, in general, inconsistent, but Holland's variance formula is an immediate corollary of a more general formula by Greenland (1987, Journal of Chronic Diseases 40, 1087-1094). We show how, under a large-stratum limiting model, one can derive consistent estimators of standardized risk differences from… CONTINUE READING
