Guidance

We have been developing a two-part general guidance document for biostatisticians on dealing with measurement error and misclassification. The document includes explanations regarding errors in explanatory variables versus outcome variables in regression analyses, classical and linear measurement error versus Berkson error, misclassification of categorical variables. It points to options for statistical methods and software that has been developed to allow analyses that adjust for such error and misclassification. Moreover, different kinds of ancillary studies are explained, which are used to specify and estimate the measurement error model.
