Understanding the High Prevalence of Low-Prevalence Chronic Disease Combinations: Databases and Methods for Research. 6. Methodologies and Analytic Techniques (Study Question #2)


What methodologies and analytic techniques have been used to study MCC? What are the potential limitations of these approaches in considering less prevalent combinations of MCC?

In the section below we discuss the methodological and analytic concepts to consider when conducting MCC research, with a special emphasis on less prevalent combinations of chronic conditions. We discuss the methodologies and analytic techniques that have been used to conduct MCC research to-date, the potential strengths and limitations of these approaches and how they relate to studying less prevalent combinations of MCC.
