Why this Article: This paper, unusually, moves beyond isolating individual causes to note that "Analysis that does not examine risk factor combinations may greatly overestimate PARs associated with individual risk factors.” This is almost certainly the case for all aspects of population health in which we might be interested, but is seldom tackled empirically in our work.
