A Comparative Analysis of Macro Epidemiological Studies

The purposes of this study are:

    • To specify the optimal procedures for estimation of health effects using both aggregate and disaggregate epidemiological data
    • To critically review the dose-response epidemiological data
    • To apply optimal tests of hypothesis to examine the appropriateness of the assumptions used in estimating the data sets employed in both the Lave-Seskin and Crocker studies, and
    • to draw conclusions about the appropriateness of the results of both studies.
