Adjusted likelihoods for synthesising empirical evidence from studies that differ in quality and design: effects of environmental tobacco smoke
Wolpert, Robert L. & Mengersen, Kerrie L. (2004) Adjusted likelihoods for synthesising empirical evidence from studies that differ in quality and design: effects of environmental tobacco smoke. Statistical Science, 19(3), pp. 450-471.
Methods are introduced and illustrated for synthesising evidence from case control and cohort studies, and controlled trials, accounting for differences among the studies in their design, length of followup and quality. The methods, based on hierarchical but nonexchangeable Bayesian models, are illustrated in a synthesis of disparate information about the health effects of passive exposure to environmental tobacco smoke.
Impact and interest:
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
