Table 9.19 is based on a study with British doctors.

a. For each age, find the sample coronary death rates per 1000 person-years for nonsmokers and smokers. To compare them, take their ratio and describe its dependence on age.

b. Fit a main-effects model for the log rates having four parameters for age and one for smoking. In discussing lack of fit, show that this model assumes a constant ratio of nonsmokers’ to smokers’ coronary death rates over age.

c. From part (a), explain why it is sensible to add a quantitative interaction of age and smoking. For this model, show that the log ratio of coronary death rates changes linearly with age. Assign scores to age, fit the model, and interpret.
