Sorry, this is a vague question. I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this or can point me in the direction of some material which discusses my question.
I first just want to look at a couple of situations and then go from there.
I want to see who has a higher risk for injury:
1) someone who is older and just beginning a job vs. someone is younger and just beginning a job 2) someone who is younger and has lots of experience vs. someone who is older and has lots of experience To start off, I just want to use two continuous variables (age and experience) and see how they operate in these two situations for predicting injury risk. For 1) I also want to see when age starts to become important (if it actually ever is) and for 2) I alsoe want to see when experience starts to become important (if it actually ever is).
