What is the difference between descriptive and analytic studies? Give an example of each type of study.

Analytical studies have a comparison group, descriptive studies do not have a comparison group. A cohort study is a type of analytical study, and a correlative study is a type of descriptive study.

I'm not sure if this is what you were looking for because it might be too intuitive.
Water borne diseases. A specific example would be giardiasis.
