In this seminar we give a brief overview of some aspects of selected study designs. It is important to understand what sources of variation exist in your data and how your study design can address it. Threats to internal validity are measurement error, selection bias, imprecise estimation, confounding, missingness, and inappropriate analyses. Some design mistakes can be irremediable.
