I thank you for your answer. This is an absolutely interesting question. The method we
will use is based on PubMed Entrez API. Using a Python code, we retrieve the number of
PubMed publications jointly involving the name of the disease and the name of the risk
factor and we retrieve the PubMed ID of the most relevant search result. As you already
know, the relations having important number of query results are more likely to be
accurate. After we do this, we will give the list of the retrieved risk factors to a
number of physicians for verification. After that, we will add them to Wikidata using
QuickStatements. As for the concerns you raised, they are absolutely accurate. We can
discuss them in details after the acceptance of the proposal. You can also be a co-author
of the work.

Objet : Re: [Wikidata] Please support risk factor Wikidata property
interesting proposal, indeed. I left a comment on the page, which basically says we need
qualifiers and references. The references because some claims will be controversial (even
if backed up by literature), while I also see these links as likely time bound, due to
changing health policies (I can think of a few other reasons), at least for the residence
examples (I hope no one gets any ideas about Q4 'risk factor' 'residence'
With kind regards,

Dear Mr. or Ms.,
I thank you for your efforts. I invite you to support the proposal of risk factor as a
Wikidata property. The property will be an excellent contribution to Wikidata as it can
allow this high-scale knowledge base to be useful for digital epidemiology purposes. The
proposal is available in
. This property is a
generalization of the first property proposal I developed.
