Incidence (epidemiology)

Index Incidence (epidemiology)

Incidence in epidemiology is a measure of the probability of occurrence of a given medical condition in a population within a specified period of time. [1]

Attributable risk

In epidemiology, attributable risk or excess risk is the difference in rate of a condition between an exposed population and an unexposed population.

Cumulative incidence

Cumulative incidence or incidence proportion is a measure of frequency, as in epidemiology, where it is a measure of disease frequency during a period of time.

In epidemiology, data or facts about a population is called denominator data.

Kaplan–Meier estimator

The Kaplan–Meier estimator, also known as the product limit estimator, is a non-parametric statistic used to estimate the survival function from lifetime data.

Prevalence in epidemiology is the proportion of a particular population found to be affected by a medical condition (typically a disease or a risk factor such as smoking or seat-belt use).

Proportionality (mathematics)

In mathematics, two variables are proportional if there is always a constant ratio between them.
