This article concerns measurement error in epidemilogic studies, often called errors-in-variables. I discuss what measurement error is, its impact on parameter estimates and hypothesis tests, and how to perform statistical analyses that account for the measurement error. Keywords: measurement error; errors-in-variables; attenuation; misclassification; instrumental variables; latent variables; regression calibration; SIMEX (simulation extrapolation)
