FSN 420 paper evaluation form cross-sectional analyses Kim Chin 10/16/11 Study (author, date): Lee S Griss, Li Li, Earl S Ford, and Simin Liu, 2004 Research Question (What is it? Clearly stated? Is there a hypothesis?): “Is there a correlation between the consumption of refined carbohydrates and the prevalence of type 2 diabetes in the United States?” Yes, I think it was clearly stated. The hypothesis wasn’t clearly stated, but the article veered towards the belief that there was a correlation between the consumption of refined carbohydrates and the prevalence of type 2 diabetes. Study Design (What type of cross-sectional study is this? Briefly, in a sentence or two, what was done?): This is a cross-sectional study that incorporates looking at a relationship between an exposure and outcome. To find this data, the per capita nutrient consumption in the US between 1909 and 1997 was observed to see if there was a correlation between the prevalence of type 2 diabetes. This was done by using a multivariate nutrient-density model; in particular corn syrup was chosen to represent refined carbohydrates using the National Nutrient Data Bank. Study Population ( Who was studied or who is the target population of interest? Was the population or study sample representative?):

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
