that males have (1/0.423 =) 2.36 times higher hazards of developing coronary heart disease compared to the females. In other words, females have 2.36 times lower hazards of developing coronary heart disease compared to the males. 4. How does the hazard ratio compare to the odds ratio obtained from the simple logistic regression from the previous problem? Why might they differ? (3 points) The odds ratio from the simple binary logistic regression and the hazards ratio from the Cox proportional hazards model are slightly different. For example, simple binary logistic regression shows that males have (1/0.332) = 3.01 higher odds of having coronary heart disease, while the Cox proportional hazards model shows that males have (1/0.423 =) 2.36 times higher hazards of developing coronary heart disease compared to the females. The hazard ratio and the odds ratio are different because one of the methods (i.e. Cox proportional hazards model from which hazard ratio was obtained) accounts for the time of the event and takes care of the censoring and skewness associated with survival data while the other method (i.e. simple binary logistic regression from which odds ratio was obtained) does not.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
