Observational studies, administrative database studies, and registries offer a wealth of real-world information, if designed, maintained, and analyzed according to appropriate observational study methodology. This review summarizes basic observational study methods employed in rheumatology and highlights several notable examples. In response to growing interest in real-world effectiveness and safety data, registries are expected to proliferate in the near future.
