Hi Gabriel, Thanks for raising the attention to quantitative work in this field, and especially for bringing forward my article in International Journal of Epidemiology: http://ije.oxfordjournals.org/content/36/2/330.abstract. I am very experienced in applying quantitative methods in our field.

I have recently come across an article in the International Journal of Epidemiology http://Int. J. Epidemiol. (2007) 36 (2): 330-335. In this case, an analysis of Dutch Jews and survival related factors was looked at and some very nice statistical tools were utilized to develop background factors which had not received prior attention. This has prompted me to think of using statistical methods to analyze previously published figures in a number of situations.
I am not sure about specific comparative studies; but a book, which most likely you've seen, was published in 1999 by Shandler addressing the topic.
