2. Explain why the Harvard Nurses' Health Study is an observational study. Critics sometimes say that
the results would be more valid if obtained by experiments rather than observations. Discuss whether it
would be possible to gather similar data by carry

Consider some of the results that are likely to come from the Harvard Nurses' Health
Study over the next 10 to 20 years. What types of results do you think will be most
important? Do you think the findings will alter the way you live your life?
I think so
Why is it often impossible to know the actual value of any population parameter? Give an
example of a population parameter that you cannot calculate, but that you can estimate.
The possibility is impossible, the numbers are too big and only part of the en
