Levels of Evidence

The large evidence pyramid represents the 5S model showing the levels of evidence from lowest at the base to the highest at the peak. The red part of the pyramid includes a smaller pyramid on the left side. This lists the hierarchy of types of evidence represented by single studies. The blue part shows the hierarchy of evidence represented by syntheses of studies.
