  1. Chittenden County Health Department reported 17 new cases of lyme disease in the first half of 1994 and 18 additional cases during the second half of the year.  The population of the county was 204,500 at the beginning of the year and 215,000 at the end of the year.  What was the incidence rate of lyme disease in Chittenden County in 1994?  What type of incidence rate is this?

 

  1.  Health authorities in Savannah, GA reported that 22 injuries requiring hospitalization occurred in the city of 65,000 during St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.  Eight additional cases occurred during the following month, and two of these died from their injuries.  What was the prevalence rate of injuries requiring hospitalization on the holiday and for the period as a whole?

 

  1. An epidemiological study of prostate cancer among elderly men followed 1,400 men, 65-79 years of age, without evidence of prostate cancer over several years.  Every two years the investigators examined the men for prostate cancer.  The results were as follows:  12 new cases at the first evaluation, 11 new cases at the second evaluation, 23 new cases at the third evaluation, and 28 new cases at the fourth (final) evaluation.  The investigators also noted that 35 of the men had withdrawn from the study at the third evaluation.  Based on this information, calculate and interpret the incidence density rate of prostate cancer in this group.

 

 

  1. In 1990, there were 4,500 deaths due to lung diseases in miners aged 20 to 64 years.  The expected number of deaths in this occupational group, based on age-specific deaths rates from lung diseases in all males aged 20 to 64 years, was 1,800 during 1990.  What is the standardized mortality ratio (SMR) for lung disease in miners?  Interpret this ratio.
