Observational Studies are research studies in which researchers collect information from participants or look at data that was already collected. 

In observational studies, researchers follow groups of people over a period of time. Depending on the study, groups may include healthy people, people with cancer, or people who are at high risk for developing cancer, such as those with a family history.
