Data Request Number: 2016-0765 Is the scientific purpose of the research proposal clearly described?: Yes Will request create or materially enhance generalizable scientific and/or medical knowledge to inform science and public health?: Yes Can the proposed research be reasonably addressed using the requested data?: Unsure, further clarification from requestor is needed Please use this space to provide any comments, feedback or concerns (optional):

The authors just report that they are looking to identify the most “efficient” analytic methods but I remain unclear about how they determine what is “efficient.”  How will they determine if they have identified an improved approach.  In addition, in the dissemination section, they say the manuscript will be written by a “publication committee.”  I think this should be further clarified as well.

Recommendation for this data request: Not Approve

Needs further clarification as above.
