Epidemiology is driven by data and usually relies on the   collection of information and the analysis and interpretation of that   information. Researchers in epidemiology are interested in the constant   measurement or assessment of the relationship between exposure and   disease/outcome. The study designs can be classified as observational or   experimental depending on the approach used to assess the association between   exposure and outcome.

For the Unit III Case Study, research and describe one   experimental study design and one observational study design, and provide at   least one example of how each design can be used in a research intervention.

Explain how one of these studies can be applied to one of the   health problems you identified in your community in the Unit I Case Study.   Provide a statistical table of the health problem you previously identified   in your community (prevalence, incidence, mortality rates, and morbidity   rates). This information is usually found in the local departments of health   websites. Explain whether the health problem in your community is an endemic,   epidemic, or pandemic.

The case study must be a minimum of four pages in length,   excluding the title and reference pages. To support your ideas, use a minimum   of three outside sources; one may be the textbook. Additionally, use a source   that focuses on your community, such as a newspaper or journal article. 

Assignment must be formatted using APA style, including in-text   citations and references.
