Reporting of internal prediction errors in case-control studies of genetic interactions

      Studies of the effects of genetic interactions on risk of disease are commonly investigated in case-control studies. In such studies, an internal prediction error, expressed as the proportion of times a model is expected to err in prediction, provides critical information about the effectiveness of the statistical model for disease prediction. Because of concern about lack of reporting, we examined the frequency of reporting of an internal prediction error in recently published case-control genetic interaction studies.
