Incidence is a term which is used to denote measurements of disease frequency which occurs in a population over a period of time.
Incidence Rate of Disease = (n / Total population at risk) x 10 n
n - Total no of new cases of specific disease
In a hospital, there are 3 total number of new cases of specific disease and total population risk is 2. Calculate incidence rate of disease of the patient.
Total no of new cases of specific disease(n) = 3 Total population risk = 2
|Incidence Rate of Disease||(n / Total population at risk) x 10 n|
|(3 / 2) x 10 3|
|1.5 x 1000|
