Jackknife empirical likelihood method for case-control studies with gene-environment independence on controls
Pages: 293 – 302
In this paper, we propose a jackknife empirical likelihood method to do inference for the interested parameters of the multiplicative-intercept risk models by taking into account the gene-environment independence on controls in case-control studies. It is shown that the proposed statistic is asymptotically chi-squared distributed. Simulation studies investigate the small-sample properties. A real example is also given.
