  1. Attributable risk : advantages of a broad definition of exposure.

    Article - En anglais

    Classification of exposure into two levels-one consisting exclusively of unexposed individuals and the other consisting of exposed and perhaps unexposed ones-yields an unbiased estimate of attributable risk when misclassification is nondifferential.

    The authors advocate, therefore, the use of a broad definition of exposure when estimating attributable risk.

    Based on this idea, they justify a simple and robust method for estimating the overall attributable risk from several exposures that is based on a division of subjects into two groups, a baseline consisting of those unexposed to all exposures and everyone else.
