Quick Reference

A term used to describe the situation when an investigator uses unsuitable research methods to address a problem, leading to the outcome of finding “the right answer to the wrong question.” A common form of this is to use methods that detect interindividual differences, when the problem requires methods that can detect differences between population groups, or vice versa.

Subjects: Public Health and Epidemiology.
