Tipping Point Analyses.


The strength of evidence provided by epidemiological and observational studies is inherently limited by the potential for unmeasured confounding. We focus on three key quantities: the observed bound of the confidence interval closest to the null, a plausible residual effect size for an unmeasured continuous or binary confounder, and a realistic mean difference or prevalence difference for this hypothetical confounder. Building on the methods put forth by Lin, Psaty, & Kronmal (1998) , we can use these quantities to assess how an unmeasured confounder may tip our result to insignificance, rendering the study inconclusive.
