This chapter outlines the key stages in the design and interpretation of nutritional epidemiological studies; considers the pitfalls likely to be met; reviews the ways in which new techniques may be of benefit; and presents a scheme for the systematic evaluation of study designs and published papers. The emphasis throughout is on creating an optimal study design; undertaking appropriate method testing and evaluation; and a consideration of the broader aspects of study design (e.g., cognitive testing, cultural factors, follow-up, compliance, and measures of change). The chapter ends with appendices on questionnaire design and administration, and guidelines for describing nutritional epidemiological study designs and methods.

Keywords:   study design, questionnaire design, methods, method testing, cognitive testing, cultural factors, method description, method definition
