Potentials and Limitations of observational population-based studies
Dr. Till Ittermann, (Head of the Statistical Method Unit, Institute for Community Medicine, University Medicine Greifswald)
There is a broad range of medical research questions which can be addressed by population-based studies including the description of prevalence and incidence of diseases and risk factors, the definition of reference intervals for clinical biomarkers, the investigation of associations between potential (genetical) risk factors and diseases, the calculation and validation of prediction models for certain diseases, and data mining analyses. Limitations, which has to be taken into account, derive from selection bias, confounding bias and information bias. This talk will give a summary on the potentials and limitations of population-based studies using examples from the Study of Health in Pomerania.
