Do you think we'll have to know C Division level statistics just in case?

On my Div. B States Test, there was Div. C stats. You should probably practice it, even though it won't show up on nationals because they actually know what they are doing :D

just know some basic stats such as specificity, sensitivity, productive rate, etc.

Some basic things, go through a Div. C test and see all the calculations involved, then look it all up and add it to your resource sheet. The test will probably include bias and error but you don't need to know that for Div. B. Ignore z-score, and all other calculations similar to that.

Is an incidence rate = attack rate = incidence proportion?

incidence rate = incidence proportion = people sick/population/time period
attack rate = people sick/population

So no.
