On the efficiency of age-adjusted tests in animal carcinogenicity experiments.


Based on asymptotic relative efficiency calculations, Ryan (1985, Biometrics 41, 525-531) concludes that, in the analysis of animal carcinogenicity experiments, age-adjusted tests of tumor rates should be routinely preferred to simple proportions tests for both lethal and nonlethal tumors. We recalculate the asymptotic efficiencies of the simple proportions… (More)
