Abstract

In Appendix C the mathematical theory behind misclassification in passive smoking is discussed in some detail. Two situations are considered. The first is the 2×2 table, where the true proportional division by smoking habits of the subjects and their spouses is as follows:

Subject

Spouse

   
 

Non-smoker

Smoker

  

Non-smoker

N1

N2

  

Smoker

N3

N4

  
and the between-spouse smoking habit concordance is defined as C = N1N4/N2N3.
