Measures of disease occurrence T Ancelle / A Bosman / D Coulombier / A Moren / P Sudre / M Valenciano/ P Penttinen Peter Kreidl

2
Objectives Define and use –Risk - Cumulative incidence (CI) - Attack rate (AR) - Rate - Incidence rate (IR) –Odds –Prevalence

3
RISK

4
Risk

5
RISK Non-technical definition –Vague, culture-dependent –Unexpected, unusual, dangerous/negative events

6
RISK Non-technical definition –Vague, culture-dependent –Unexpected, unusual, dangerous/negative events Epidemiologic definition –Probability that an event will occur –Estimated by: Observing events among a population during a specified time

7
Cumulative Incidence (CI) (Incidence Proportion) Number of NEW cases of disease during a period Population at the beginning of the period

8
Cumulative Incidence (CI) (Incidence Proportion) Number of NEW cases of disease during a period Population at the beginning of the period Ex: Bilharziosis in Guadeloupe in 1979: Population 350,000 New cases 1,250 Cumulative incidence= 0.0036 per year = 0.36 % per year = 3.6 new cases / 1000 during a year

9
x x x x x x x x disease onset Month 1 Month12 Cumulative Incidence Population = 12 Diseased = 7

10
x x x x x x x x disease onset Month 1 Month12 Cumulative Incidence CI = 7/12 = 0.58 per year = 58% per year

11
x x x x x x x x disease onset Month 1 Month12 Cumulative Incidence CI = 7/12 = 0.58 per year = 58% per year CI assumes that the entire population at risk is followed up for the same time period

12
Attack Rate (AR) Cumulative incidence during an outbreak Expressed for the entire epidemic period, from the first to the last case Not really a rate but a proportion!

13
Attack Rate (AR) Cumulative incidence during an outbreak Expressed for the entire epidemic period, from the first to the last case Not really a rate but a proportion! Ex: Outbreak of cholera in country X in March 1999 –Number of cases 490 –Population 18,600 –Attack rate 2.6%

14
RISK The probability that an event will occur Proportion ! Cumulative incidence or incidence proportion Attack rate

15
Rate

16
Incidence rate Number of NEW cases of disease Total person - time of observation

17
Incidence rate Number of NEW cases of disease Total person - time of observation Rate Denominator: - is a measure of time - the sum of each individuals time at risk and free from disease

Odds

21
Odds (plural) Probability that an event will happen Probability that an event will not happen

22
Odds WonLost Total ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ EPIET facilitator team 1995-2004 14 1 15 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Probability that an event will happen Probability that an event will not happen

23
Odds WonLost Total ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ EPIET facilitator team 1995-2004 14 1 15 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Probability that an event will happen Probability that an event will not happen 14 / 15 Odds of winning = ------------- 1 / 15 = 14 : 1 = 14

24
Odds of a rare event equal the risk of rare event

25
The number of hepatitis cases during an outbreak Cases Non cases Population ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hepatitis A 30 49,97050,000 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

26
Odds of a rare event equal the risk of rare event The number of hepatitis cases during an outbreak Cases Non cases Population ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hepatitis A 30 49,97050,000 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 30 / 50,000 Odds of disease = ------------------------ = 0.006 49,970 / 50,000

27
Odds of a rare event equal the risk of rare event The number of hepatitis cases during an outbreak Cases Non cases Population ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hepatitis A 30 49,97050,000 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 30 / 50,000 Odds of disease = ------------------------ = 0.006 49,970 / 50,000 Risk (CI) of disease = 30/50,000 = 0.006

28
Summary of disease occurence Risk –Cumulative incidence or incidence proportion –Attack rate Rate –Incidence rate Odds

29
Prevalence (point prevalence) Number of cases of disease at a specific time Population of interest at that time

30
Prevalence (point prevalence) Number of cases of disease at a specific time Population of interest at that time Proportion of a population affected by a disease at a given time. Expressed as a percentage

31
Prevalence (point prevalence) Number of cases of disease at a specific time Population of interest at that time Proportion of a population affected by a disease at a given time. Expressed as a percentage Ex: Bilharziosis in Guadeloupe in 1979: Population 350,000 Cases 96,200 Prevalence 27.6%
