Odds Ratio Interpretation

I understand when interpreting OR it’s the “odds that x happens, given y” or “the odds of x happening is times more for group a than group b”. ​ If the OR for a binary variable (F/M) is 0.704, would the interpretation be “For females, the odds of y are .296 times less than the odds of a male doing y”? I understand interpreting the inverse is ‘clearer’ but that is not the instruction received. ​ If the OR for a continuous variable is 0.051, is the interpretation “For each increase in x (continuous variable), the odds of y happening decreases by 0.949”? ​ Any help is appreciated. OR and False Negative/Positive are topics I cannot seem to cement. submitted by /u/simply_stayce [link] [comments]
