Table 1 Parameters varied and all their possible values for the simulation study

From: Evaluation of exposure-specific risks from two independent samples: A simulation study

Parameter Possible values
Exposure probability .05, .20
Probability of disease among unexposed .02, .09
RR 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0
Sample size combinations for the overall risk and RR (N1/N2) 250/250*, 1,000/1,000, 1,000/5,000, 5,000/1,000, 5,000/5,000
  1. *Note: The 250/250 sample size combination was only performed in Scenario 4 (probability of exposure = .20; probability of disease among unexposed = .09).
