Comment of the Week
“Mark asks: ‘what is the point of all these observational studies?’
The point is for researchers to do something. I don’t say that in a cynical way, just in an observational way (har-har). Someone needs to write a thesis, then have a career, etc. The sheer quantity of these studies says more about how many people pursue this career path relative to the fruits of their labor, and less about what high-quality research looks like.
They do have some* potential for good. If we ever find that there’s some weird link between covid and broccoli, (or trans fats and heart disease), it will maybe be inspired by these datasets.”
– Great point, Grah.
