1. What is another name for incidence proportion?
2. Define the secondary attack rate.
3. In what type of scenario would I want a cohort study vs a case-control study? Give an example.
4. How many food-borne illness cases are there every year in the US?
1. Incidence rate?
2. The attack rate of new cases among the contacts of known cases
3. If the disease is rare, you would want to use a case-control study. However, case-control studies can only be retrospective, so if you want to run an experiment to figure out the effects of an exposure on a disease, you would run a cohort study.
4. Around 240 000?
1. Attack rate or risk
2. Correct.
3. Correct.
4. 48 million

1. I have no idea.
2. Number of births to the size of the population
3. An aggregation of cases over a certain time and geographical location.
4. Index case
5. Statistical variations in the data based on measurements of the tools used.
6. Systematic Error
Edit: I looked up 1. and see that it's an international society for infectious diseases.
