STATISTICAL INTERACTIONS AND BAYES ESTIMATES
OF LOG ODDS FOR BINARY DISEASE TRAITS

Certain interactions, referred to as removable interactions, arise in statistical models due to the scale of the outcome's measurement. All the removable interactions in a model can be written parsimoniously using a single scalar parameter - equivalently, when interactions are removable under some scale of the outcome, we can fit an additive model to the data under an invertible transformation of the outcome by estimating a single scalar parameter to identify the specific transformation. These concepts, their uses in epidemiology and clinical studies, and some of the related statistical methods are illustrated using data from three endometrial cancer case-control studies.

Joint work with Sara Olson (MSKCC) and Robert Elston (CWRU).
