Data Request Number: 2020-4236 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?: Unsure, further clarification from requestor is needed Can the proposed research be reasonably addressed using the requested data?: Yes, or it’s highly likely Please use this space to provide any comments, feedback or concerns (optional):

The increments for categorical increases in BP seem very large (10mm Hg diastolic, 20mg systolic) and I’m not sure what they add to the continuously variable BP data. Given that the latter will be part of the analysis however I would not see this as an objection to approval.

Recommendation for this data request: Approve
