<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>Prostate Screening Drops Sharply, And So Do Cancer Cases <a href=”https://t.co/hW1B5i7Kk8″>https://t.co/hW1B5i7Kk8</a></p>&mdash; NPR Health News (@NPRHealth) <a href=”https://twitter.com/NPRHealth/status/666649763790516225″>November 17, 2015</a></blockquote>

1. This article talks about new data that supports not only a large drop in prostate cancer screenings, but also a large drop in prostate cancer cases. I chose this article because I wanted to investigate whether the drop was simply caused by the lack of people screening.

3. The tweet is from NPR Health.The researchers found that the rate at which men were diagnosed with prostate cancer fell from 505 per 100,000 in 2010 to 416 in 2012.  The study was published in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association.

4. Other than telling us who conducted the study, the article does not tell us how specifically the data was collected. I am wondering how it was collected, and how the sample was created, how large and why.
