Abstract

One of the reasons for the contradictions and discrepancies regarding the prognostic value of the exercise test variables is a problem with methodology and analysis. This overview of the important methodologic and analysis issues may serve as a guide for researchers in the next decade. Alternatively, skeptics may say that the complexity of these problems do not lend themselves to definitive resolution. Nevertheless, better appreciation for study design and analysis will guide the researchers' efforts to obtain answers.
