1 Why Do We Need Retrospective Database Studies? The traditional prejudice against nonrandomized designs in the health sciences is still strong, but there are many reasons that observational studies are needed to complement randomized controlled trials (RCTs). First, claims databases often provide sample sizes that are as much as two or three orders of magnitude greater than large RCTs. Second, RCTs are also limited in time, often ranging from a few weeks up to 1 year. For research questions investigating long-term outcomes, data sources that can follow patients over longer periods of time are needed.

In that case, the assumptions of linear regression (existence, independence, linearity, homoscedasticity, and normal distribution) should be checked to make sure the model is a good fit [22]. 2 Comparative Design In a comparative design, two or more cohorts are selected, such as users of oral vs. topical medications for acne. Since analyses of claims data do not use randomization – the treatment is chosen by the patient and provider, not by the investigator – baseline characteristics of the cohorts may be different, so interpretation of the results must be made carefully.
