Formatted Abstract/Summary
Health-related data sets resulting from cohort or longitudinal studies (that is, studies where a group of people are followed in terms of their health experiences over many years) are abundant throughout  the world. While the research aim and scope of such studies do not necessarily include CAM, some are concerned with CAM-related issues (for instance consultanon with a CAM practitioner or consumption of vitamin/mineral/herbal supplements). A focused analysis of CAM users is often neglected m these studies and the potential to explore a rich source of information on CAM use and CAM users frequently remains unexplored (Adams, 2007).
      This chapter draws on the experience of the authors in conducting. CAM-focused
secondary data analysis (SDA) of cohort studies to help describe the advantages and disadvantages of analysing existing longitudinal data sets wlth a view to CAM use and users.
