The Odds Ratio
The odds ratio is the ratio of the odds of an event occurring in one group to the odds of it occurring in another group.

Relative Risk
The ratio of the probability of a given event occurring in one group to the probability of the same event in the other group.
p(A)1/p(A)2

Odds
The odds of a n event is the ratio of probabilty that the event occurs to the probabilty that it does not occur.
P(A) = ODa/1+ODa

Bayes Theorem
Bayes Theorem is based on individual belief to capture probability and to revise it as new information arrives.
Posterior = (Prior)(Likelihood)/Marginal
 Prior  Before sample information is collected
 Posterior  A prior after sample information is collected and analyzed.
 Likelihood Probability of sample information given the state of nature will take place.
 Marginal  Probability of observing data whether the state of nature is true or false.
