Abstract

Since the use of multivariable survival analysis for pregnancy outcome studies was first introduced into the reproductive epidemiology literature (1), few researchers examining fetal loss have applied these methods, which include Cox proportional hazards and other statistical models. Because logistic regression can yield misleading results, Li et al. (2) are to be commended for electing to make use of these methods. It might appear, therefore, that their study was methodologically strong.
