Repeating Data Sets

 

When looking at published papers, repeated data sets are the type of data that occur multiple times within a paper. For example, a study that looks at multiple outcomes, or has multiple arms within each outcome, the resulting data found would repeat. This can be very difficult to capture while maintaining context and differentiating between each part of the data set. One of the ways suggested ways to overcome this problem is through Hierarchical Data Extraction.
