NOTE: The OR for event k, that is, ORk is defined as the ratio of odds of developing event k for the exposed (X = 1) and the odds of event k for the unexposed (X = 0), k = 1, 2; the HR for event k, that is, Embedded Image is defined as the HR for developing event k associated with exposure; scenarios (a)–(d) considered events 1 and 2 have proportional hazards functions and scenarios (e)–(h) considered events 1 and 2 do not have proportional hazards functions.
