  9. 9. Sunday 27 May APCSC satellite symposium Statistical methods Dr. Mark Woodward, The University of Sydney <ul><li>Studies included in the APCSC were identified by database searches, personal contacts, etc., in the Asia-Pacific region. At least information about age, sex, blood pressure, and cause of death were available with a 5000+ person-years follow-up for each study. Hazard ratios were estimated by using Cox’s proportional models, in which age, sex, and study centre were considered as primary confounders; other potential confounders were additionally considered in the secondary analyses; the outcomes were fatal and fatal/nonfatal events; sub-group analyses were conducted basically by fitting interaction terms. The effect of regression dilution bias was corrected by the methods of MacMahon/Peto and Rosner. </li></ul>.
