15. A 5-year prospective cohort study has just been completed.

Resolved Question:

15. A 5-year prospective cohort study has just been completed. The study was designed to assess the association between supplemental vitamin A exposure and mortality and morbidity from measles. The RR for incidence of measles was 0.75, and the RR for measles mortality was 0.5. Which statement is correct? (Points: 2)
A cohort study is not an appropriate study design in this case because the association between one exposure and two different outcomes is being considered.
One of the problems that this study may have faced is individuals lost to follow-up during the 5-year period.
A cohort study was not a good design to study this association because measles is a very common disease.
None of the above
