Odds ratios are one of the methods in statistics to quantify how strongly the presence or absence of a property correlates with the presence or absence of another property in a given population. In the biomedical sciences they are an effective way to investigate the effectiveness of medical interventions towards desired outcomes and the strength with which certain factors influence the risk of a particular disease. Our goal is to collate the significant amount of data that has been published regarding interventions and risk factors using odds ratios into a single database that can be used by the public to compare their effectiveness and importance in influencing desired outcomes in medicine.
