Prevalence is a term which is used to denote the measurements of disease frequency. Prevalence of a disease is the proportion of population affected by a specific disease at a particular time.This tutorial explains you how to calculate the Prevalence rate of Disease.
Consider that a hospital has 2 all new & preexisting cases of specific disease and total population 4. Calculate the Prevalence Rate of Disease.
All new & preexisting cases of specific disease (n) = 2 Total population = 4
Prevalence Rate of Disease
|Prevalence Rate of Disease||= (n / Total population) x 10 n|
|= (2 / 4) x 10 2|
|= 0.5 x 100|
