We looked at the Study Designs in the earlier post.
Let us now look at the study population or the population that we study in order to answer the research question. The selection of the study population is very important and plays a crucial part in the ability to answer the research question.
I am sharing some of my thoughts on the selection of the study population. Feel free to critically analyze, adapt or adopt, and to further expand on these. The selection of the study population is unique to each research question, so I am sharing some of the questions I work through (do not expect ready made answers).
