1. The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention
 2. The systematic ongoing collection, analysis, interpretation and dissemination of health data.

Correct!
Hmm... Why isn't it CDCP? Oh well.
Your turn!

All right :D ! What is the difference between an endemic and a hyperendemic?

Endemic: disease occurs constantly in a specific area
Hyperendemic: disease occurs at a constant high incidence and prevalence in a specific area

Adapted from CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report:
During 2008–2012, a total of 90 cases of trichinellosis, including five outbreaks, were reported to CDC from [insert random state here]. Of these 90 cases, six were excluded from analysis, including one that did not meet the case definition and five for which case report forms were not available.

What is a symptom of trichinellosis?
What are the criteria for a case definition?

After interviewing the 84 cases and 53 controls, 52 case-patients ate pork from Joe's Butcher Shop while only 19 controls ate pork from Joe's Butcher Shop.

What type of study design is this?
What is the odds ratio/relative risk (whatever is the most appropriate) for pork from Joe's Butcher Shop?

I don't know how to hide answer because I'm new but here goes:
1. Diarrhea, Constipation
2. Clinical Information, Person, Location, Time Sequence
3. Case-Control
4. Odds Ratio= ad/bc = (52*34)/(32*19)= 1768/608= 2.91

Correct, and pork from Joe's Butcher Shop would be considered a primary cause of trichinellosis.
