Cohort is represented by the years in the first column, time of measurement is represented by the years across the top, and age is represented by the numbers in the individual cells.

Sometimes researchers cannot obtain measures directly from people and are able only to watch them carefully. In certain situations, researchers may be able to study a single individual in great detail in a case study. This technique is especially useful when researchers want to investigate very rare phenomena, such as uncommon diseases or people with extremely high ability. Identifying new diseases, for example, begins with a case study of one individual who has a pattern of symptoms that is different from any known syndrome.

G. the surviving participants may have been those who initially less healthy). The third problem with longitudinal designs is that our ability to apply the results to other groups is limited. The difficulty is that only one cohort is followed. Whether the pattern of results that is observed in one cohort can be generalized to another cohort is questionable. Thus researchers using longitudinal designs run the risk of uncovering a developmental process that is unique to that cohort. Because longitudinal designs necessarily take more time and usually are expensive, they have not been used very often.
