For example, if I have a continuous predictor variable that has a relative risk ratio of 5.3 within a comparison group, does this mean that every time this variable increases by a single unit of measurement the probability of an observational outcome being the comparison group is 5.3 times more likely to occur vs. the base outcome group?
