Description

Compute Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel chi-squared test of the null that two nominal variables are conditionally independent in each stratum, assuming that there is no three-way interaction.

Usage

mantelHaenszel(exposure, outcome, stratum)

Arguments

exposure

Binary variable coding whether patient was exposed (1) or not (0).

outcome

Binary variable coding outcome of patient.

stratum

Nominal variable containing information about matching, i.e. strata.

Value

tab

Table that counts numbers of strata for each case-control combination.

test.stat

p.val

p-value of chi^2 test.

# via conditional logistic regression
