The development of Bradford Hill's epidemiological research is traced from his use, as a novice research worker, of the then customary prevalence surveys, through case-control studies, to cohort studies.
In his studies of the relationships between inoculation (in general) and the development of paralytic poliomyelitis and between smoking and lung cancer and many other diseases, he set out for the first time the criteria required in the conduct of case-control and cohort studies if they were to provide reliable results and cause-and-effect relationships distinguished from those due to bias and confounding.
