Comparative exposure rate, Advanced Statistics

Comparative exposure rate: A measure of alliance for use in a matched case-control study, de?ned as the ratio of the number of case-control pairs, where the case has greater exposure to the risk factor under investigation, to the number where the control has greater exposure.

In simple cases the measure is equivalent to the odds ratio or a weighted combination of odds ratios. In more common cases the measure can be used to assess connection when an odds ratio computation is not feasible.
