Zero incident cases represent higher than expected number of cases?
In the last 2 rows of Table 2 under Quartile 3, it shows Incident Cases = 0, which corresponds to sHR = 1.41.
Doesn't that imply that the expected number of cancer cases per your risk model for Quartile 3 is less than zero.
A negative expected number of cancer cases is impossible.
That is, how can zero cases of cancer represent a higher than expected risk of cancer?
