  • Basagaña Flores, Xavier; Liao, Xiaomei; Spiegelman, Donna (Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2010)
    Existing study design formulas for longitudinal studies assume that the exposure is time invariant or that it varies in a manner that is controlled by design. However, in observational studies, the investigator does not ...
