While studying logistic modeling, I read the following statement
I do not know what do the "case-control" and "cross-sectional studies" stand for in the statistical analysis? Moreover, I do not quite understand what does the above statement mean from the viewpoint of statistical analysis. Any explanations will be appreciated.
The fact that only odds ratios, not individual risks, can be estimated from logistic modeling in case-control or cross-sectional studies is not surprising.
