Ungrouped Poisson | Proportional hazards | Grouped Poisson | ||
---|---|---|---|---|

From proportional hazards and ungrouped Poisson regression with continuous exposure variables and grouped Poisson regression with quantitative exposure scores assigned by two methods, as shown. | ||||

*Beta coefficients represent the estimated change in the log rate or hazard or brain cancer per μT-year exposure to 60 Hz magnetic fields. | ||||

†Exposure categories defined by deciles of the population distribution of exposure. Scores assigned to exposure categories based on mean values for all person-time accrued in the category. | ||||

‡Exposure categories defined by deciles of the distribution of exposure among cases. Scores assigned to exposure categories based on mean values for all person-time accrued in the category. | ||||
