  1. marker

    Marker An indicator of something else. Sometimes there is an association with a factor that people might think is the cause. However, rather than being the cause, it could just be a marker for the real cause: it just indicates or points to people who are experiencing the real cause as well as the "marker'. Eg, if something happens more frequently among smokers, on occasion this may have nothing to do with the effects of tobacco: smoking could be a marker for something else, such as lower socioeconomic status (because people on lower incomes are more likely to also smoke) www.cochrane.org/cochrane/cngloss.htmSee ACRONYMS
