Step 1

Given information:

It is given that, in order to estimate the difference between exposure to lead paint in childhood (exposure) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a sample of 400 children are considered and the data on exposure and ADHD diagnosis is given below:

fullscreen
Step 2

Obtain the estimate of the crude or unadjusted relative risk.

Relative risk:

The relative risk is the ratio of two probabilities.

Consider that the probability or risk of ADHD in exposure to lead paint is denoted by R1.

The probability or risk of ADHD in No exposure to lead paint is denoted by R2

The crude or unadjusted relative risk is obtained as 3.2939 from the calculation given below:

Step 3

Obtain the estimate of the crude or unadjusted odds ratio.

Odds ratio:

The odds ratio is the ratio of two odds. Odds of an event will be the number of events divided by number of non-events.

That is, odds will be calculated as p/(1–p).

The odds of ADHD in exposure to lead paint will be (odds of ADHD in exposure to lead paint/ odds of no ADHD in exposure to lead...
