Description Format Author(s) References


The dataset reports the summarized dose-response results from a cumlative-incidence study on high-fat dairy food intake and risk of colorectal cancer, first presented by Larsson, Bergkvist, and Wolk (2005).


A data frame with 5 observations on the following 8 variables:

dose assigned dose levels.
case number of cases for each exposure level.
n total number of subjects for each exposure level.
adjrr adjusted risk ratios for each exposure level.
lb lower bound for the confidence limits of the adjusted risk ratios.
ub upper bound for the confidence limits of the adjusted risk ratios.
logrr natural logarithm of adjusted risk ratios.
se standard error for the logarithm of the adjusted risk ratios.
