Computational notes

The relative risk (RR), its standard error and 95% confidence interval are calculated according to Altman, 1991.

The relative risk or risk ratio is given by

with the standard error of the log relative risk being

and 95% confidence interval

Where zeros cause problems with computation of the relative risk or its standard error, 0.5 is added to all cells (a, b, c, d) (Pagano & Gauvreau, 2000; Deeks & Higgins, 2010).
