Data Request Number: 2019-3864 Is the scientific purpose of the research proposal clearly described?: No If no, please explain:

I still find the analytical methods poorly described and can’t envisage any specific result that might inform reseach or practice.

Will request create or materially enhance generalizable scientific and/or medical knowledge to inform science and public health?: No If no, please explain:

Despite the authors’ revisions, this seems like a general observational excercise without clear focus.

Can the proposed research be reasonably addressed using the requested data?: Yes, or it’s highly likely Recommendation for this data request: Not Approve

Despite requests for clarification, this does not read like a convincing project for delineating an agenda for better trial reporting.
