    When asked to compare study designs (i.e; longitudinal, cohort, ...etc), what does that exactly mean? Does it mainly mean comparing their advantages and disadvantages?

    Thanks.

    Their methods, strengths and weaknesses etc. I'm pretty sure a cohort study is a type of longitudinal study though :confused:
