Since no one has posted in around 2 weeks...

What type of study was John Snow's cholera study? Also, why is John Snow important?

1. Case control? 2. He is considered the father of field epidemiology and the first person to use a spot map in an epidemiological study.

For part 1, Wikipedia has a different answer, but if someone could find a concrete source that would be good.
2 is correct!

I just assumed case control because I assumed he was comparing people with an without disease to find a common exposure (in this case, a water pump).

Wikipedia said it’s the first ecological study, but I don’t really understand ecological studies myself and no website has given a good view of the difference between ecological and case control because they’re really similar sometimes (ie in this case).

I think that ecological studies are case control studies for a larger population defined using geographical data. In the case of the cholera outbreak, John Snow used a spot map to figure out the common source. I feel like ecological studies are a broader term with case control studies being subset of it.
