 Abstract
In this paper, we propose a simple estimate of relative risk based on a functional equation. We derive the asymptotic normality with a restricted condition. Then we discuss some interesting features as concluding remarks. Finally we comment briefly about application of the estimate to the testing problems and compare our estimate with that of Begun through simulation study.
