1. In order to determine if smoking causes cancer, researchers surveyed a large sample of adults. For each adult they recorded whether the person had smoked regularly at any period in their life and whether the person had cancer. They then compared the proportion of cancer cases in those who had smoked regularly at some time in their lives with the proportion of cases in those who had never smoked regularly at any point in their lives. The researchers found that there was a higher proportion of cancer cases among those who had smoked regularly than among those who had never smoked regularly. What type of study is this? A) An observational study. B) An experiment, but not a double-blind experiment. C) A double-blind experiment. D) A block design.
