In order to realize the variation in the estimate of the odds ratio from case-control studies, results from individually matched sampling were compared with those from the analysis based on a large number of controls.
The subjects were selected from those who visited Aichi Cancer Center Hospital from 1988 to 1990.
Cases consisted of 251 male lung cancer patients aged 40-79 years.
Age and year of visit matched controls were sampled independently 100 times and 5000 times from non-cancer male outpatients (cases to controls ratio : 1 : 1,1 : 2,1 : 3, and 1 : 4).
As unmatched controls, all male non-cancer outpatients aged 40-79 years (4100 patients) were used.
The smoking habit was adopted as an exposure variable.
