Nested case-control (NCC) design is a cost-effective sampling method to study the relationship between a disease and its risk factors in large epidemiologic studies. It inherits advantages from both retrospective case-control design and prospective cohort design. In this talk, I will start with a brief overview of the Cox proportional hazards model for the analysis of NCC data. Then I will discuss some practical issues encountered from our collaborative NCC studies and present some recent developments in methodology for NCC data analysis. Numerical simulation studies and real data applications are used to illustrate the proposed methods.
