cohort study

  

Definition

Analytical study in which a group having one or more similar characteristics (such as habit of smoking or a particular disease) is closely monitored over time simultaneously with another group (whose member do not smoke or are free from the disease). Although more tedious, this method is used where case study approach is not feasible, creates too many statistical problems, or generally produces unreliable results. Also called follow up study.
