Title: Directly modelling matched case-control data
Authors: LINDSEY, James
Issue Date: 2000
Citation: STATISTICS IN MEDICINE, 19(1). p. 35-44
Abstract: Matching in case-control studies is a situation in which one wishes to make inferences about a parameter of interest in the presence of nuisance parameters. The usual approach is to apply a conditional likelihood. A bivariate latent class log-linear model for binomial responses is shown to yield a standard likelihood identical to the usual conditional one. This extension of the Rasch model for binary responses gives consistent estimates and a suitable likelihood function for cases matched with any fixed number of controls.
