a.What type of study is this?
b.Use the data given above to calculate thecumulative incidenceof deaths from cancer among the study population over the follow-up period.
c.What additional information would need to be provided for you to be able to calculate theincidence rateof cancer deaths?
d.The following results were seen for men and women when the heaviest members of the cohort were compared to those with normal weight:
Men: Risk ratio of cancer death = 1.5 95% confidence interval = 1.1-2.1
Women: Risk ratio of cancer death = 1.6 95% confidence interval = 1.4-1.9
i.State in words your interpretation of the risk ratio given for the men.
ii.State in words your interpretation of the 95% confidence interval given for men. (Do not merely use the confidence interval to .)
e.Are these results confounded by gender?
