The odds that male smokers had lung cancer (rather than other diseases) increases as their daily average number of cigarettes increases. In addition to the increasing trend, there is a sign change at level 3. It indicates that there are more control patients than lung cancer patients among those who smoked fewer than 15 cigarettes; whereas there are more lung cancer patients than control patients among those who smoked at least 15 cigarettes per day. b.

The 5 log local odds ratios for each pair of adjacent level of smoking are as follows. log(θ12 ) = log(...
