Systematic review

#1
Hi all,

Trying to do a literature review on the effect of rainfall and temperature on daily trauma admissions to hospital?

If you do a study looking at the effect of rainfall and whether it decreasesor increases daily admissions and its effect using logistic regression. What type of study do you classify it as?

Thanks

Less is more. Stay pure. Stay poor.

Sounds like a retrospective observational study. How are you parameterizing admission data? Maybe your dependent variable should be continuous. IF you use categorical you may lose information compared to continuous. What is your hypothesis?
