Abstract

What do we know about risk factors for PG?

Vast majority of research carried out on PG risk factors has involved cross-sectional surveys

PG status at a single point in time statistically correlated with behaviors & characteristics assessed at the same time

Cannot resolve the “chicken and egg” problem

  • Does PG precede other disorders?
  • Do other disorders precede PG?
  • Or does one underlying condition account for both?
