  1. The effects of joint misclassification of exposure and disease on epidemiologic measures of association.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper addresses the effects of simultaneous misclassification of both exposure and disease on epidemiologic measures of association.

    If misclassification of a dichotomous exposure is independent of a dichotomous disease status and vice versa (non-differential misclassification), and misclassification of exposure is independent of misclassification of disease, then the bias is always toward the null.

    In practice, however, errors in exposure and disease ascertainment may often be correlated.

    In this case, the observed exposure-disease association may be strongly biased in any direction even with non-differential misclassification.
