BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE When estimating incidence risk ratios in follow-up studies, subjects testing positive for the disease at baseline are excluded. Although the effect of disease misclassification on estimated incidence risk ratios has otherwise been extensively explored, the effect of disease misclassification at baseline has not previously been analyzed. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING The design was theoretical calculations assuming dichotomous disease and a follow-up study with a baseline… CONTINUE READING
