One of the most comprehensive reports was by Williamson and colleagues (1992) who reviewed 28 articles that examined the scientific adequacy of study designs. Hébert and colleagues (1997) in Presenting Problem 2 focused on disability and functional changes in the elderly. the functional score declines were not significant (except for a slight decline in instrumental activities of daily living) between the second and third interviews.

After the completion of the course the student should be able to create SAS programs to read data from external files, manipulate the data into variables to be used in an analysis, generate basic reports showing the results. The course focuses on current controversies in epidemiology through a critical review of the literature. Work of the faculty—along with other investigators—also results in important contributions to the literature in their respective areas.
