Abstract: Matched case-control studies are a classical Epidemiology study design. Case-control study designs are used to estimate the relative risk for a disease from a specific risk factor. The estimate is the odds ratio, which is a good estimate of the relative risk especially when the disease is rare. cmatch tabulates the number of matched pairs by c levels of an exposure variable. cmatch forms a c x c table of matched pairs by the exposure status of the case and the exposure status of the control. The data must be in the form of individual records.
