Question

- A study was conducted to examine the association between breastfeeding and early infant weight gain. Infants and their mothers were invited into the study when the infant was first certified into WIC and then they were followed for five years. Infant feeding information was obtained from the mothers every six months as were measurements of weight and length/height of the infants and children.

- What is the exposure?
- What is the outcome?
- What is the study design (be specific)? ______________________________________
- What is the measure of effect (i.e. the statistic that we use to examine the association)? _________________________________________________

Answer #1

a)

Here the exposure in this study is **breastfeeding to the
infants**. As it is mentioned in the above that mothers and
infants are invited into the study when the infant was first
certified into WIC.

b)

Here, outcome is the **weight and height of the
infants/children** after breastfeeding( mrasured from every
6 months).

c) Study design:

As the infant first certified into the WIC, they followed for 5 years, because they are under study. Then then took weight and height of the infants every six months as they were feeded by their mother to know that if there is any kind of relationship between breastfeeding and weight and height of the infants.

d)

Meausre effect:

We will use chi-square test or t-test as per requirement to measure the association between the variables.

A small study is conducted involving 17 infants
to investigate the association between gestational age at birth (
in weeks) , and birth weight ( in gram). Please respond to the
following questions. ( 15 points)
(1) What graph would you use to display the
relationship between gestational age and birth weight?
(2) Which statistical method would you use to
describe nature and strength of the relationship between
gestational age?
(3) Which statistical method would you use to
predict birth weight using the...

You were asked to investigate the association between smoking
among mothers and infant low birth weight. You were asked to
calculate a measure of association like an Odds Ratio together with
the confidence intervals. They asked you to calculate a 90%
confidence interval instead of a 95% confidence interval. Will the
lowering of the confidence interval from 95% to 90% increase or
decrease the chance of making Type 1 error? Will this affect the
probability of making Type 2 error?...

A cohort study was conducted to examine the association between
serum nutrient levels collected from males in 1975 and the
development of prostate cancer diagnosed after 1985. The following
results were obtained for serum levels of vitamins A and E tested
in blood samples taken from the study participants upon entering
the study:
Relative risks for prostate cancer by quartile of serum

A cohort study was undertaken to examine the association between
high lipid level and coronary heart disease. Participants were
classified as having either a high lipid level (exposed) or a low
or normal lipid level (unexposed). Because age is associated with
both lipid level and risk of heart disease, age was considered a
potential confounder, and the age of each subject was recorded. The
following data describes the study participants:
Developed CHD No

EXPOSED (High lipid level)...

A study was conducted to evaluate the relationship between
artificial sweeteners and bladder cancer. 3,000 cases and 3,000
controls were enrolled in the study. Among the cases, 1293 had used
artificial sweeteners in the past, while 1707 had never used
artificial sweeteners. Of the controls, 855 had used sweeteners and
2145 had not.

Please review each of the following studies to identify the type
of study design and address each of the following criteria per a
study:
1. Unit of observation (individual or group)
2. Initial classification of subjects (disease or exposure
status)
3. Disease(s)/Outcome(s)
4. Exposure(s)
5. Directionality of exposure measurement (RF(Exp)->D or
D->RF(Exp))
RF = Risk Factor
Exp = Exposure
D = Disease
6. Number of observations (# times collected data from subject)
(1 or >1)
7. Definition of controls (if...

Based on the information provided, note whether the
study is cross-sectional, ecologic, prospective cohort, or
retrospective cohort:
1 . Pediatric providers' self-reported knowledge, practices, and
attitudes about concussion
Objective: To determine the self-reported practices and
attitudes surrounding concussion diagnosis and management of
primary care and emergency medicine providers.
METHODS: A survey was distributed to pediatric primary care and
emergency medicine providers in a single, large pediatric care
network. For all survey participants (n=145), practices
