Abstract: Evaluating the outcomes of a policy change, using identical datasets with different estimation approaches, may yield very different results. Therefore, this may lead health service researchers to potentially conflicting conclusions. This study evaluated three statistical estimation procedures while assessing the association between antiepileptic drug (AED) use and FDA suicidality warning, communicated in January 2008 and implemented in May 2009. The purpose of this study was to compare and contrast the estimates in order to assess whether three different estimation procedures lead to consistent and/or inconsistent inferences.
