The Analysis Of Matched Data: Three Approaches

The Analysis Of Matched Data: Three Approaches

Statistical Analysis of Epidemiologic Data

Steve Selvin

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a brief description of matched analysis applied to a continuous outcome variable. It then considers the matched analyses of categorical variables. Finally, the logistic model applied to analyze both continuous and categorical data collected in a matched pattern is discussed. Three sampling patterns serve as a starting point for the description of the analysis of matched data: frequency matching, poststratification, and matching. These sampling strategies are applied to a sample collected to study birth defects over an entire state to illustrate the situation in which the county of birth is an important consideration in the sampling strategy.

Keywords:   matched analysis, frequency matching, epidemiologic data analysis, poststratification, matching
