For cancers of the larynx and esophagus, tobacco and alcohol are well-established carcinogens, and most cases are attributable to their independent and joint actions.

For case-control studies, precision of estimated effects depends primarily on the size of the sample of cases and controls but also can be affected by adjustment for confounders or method of sampling (matched vs unmatched 36 ASBESTOS pairs). Precision thus depends on sample size but may be affected by other characteristics of a study design or method of analysis. Statistical Modeling RRs adjusted for confounding can be derived by stratification, by matching on confounders, or by including potential confounders in multiple regression models in which the exposure of interest is the primary independent variable.

Sources of exposure misclassification include missing or incomplete data on concentrations or work time, erroneous measurements, and poor sources of data (such as statement of usual occupation on death certificates), but the use of crude exposure classifications (such as “ever exposed” vs “never exposed”) is often necessitated by the lack of documentation on actual exposure. Selfreporting of exposure in response to lists of agents can also be a source of misclassification in population-based case-control studies.
