Question

Suppose that in 2008, 673,400 citizens died of a certain disease. Assuming the population of the country is 294 million, what was the mortality rate in units of deaths per 100,000 people?

Answer #1

**Solution:**

Given:

Number of Deaths due to a certain disease = 673,400

N = Total population Size = 294 million = 294,000,000

We have to find the mortality rate in units of deaths per 100,000 people

Thus

The mortality rate in units of deaths per 100,000 people = ( Number of Deaths due to a certain disease / N) x 100,000

The mortality rate in units of deaths per 100,000 people = (673,400 / 294,000,000) x 100,000

The mortality rate in units of deaths per 100,000 people = 0.00229048 x 100,000

The mortality rate in units of deaths per 100,000 people = 229.048

**The mortality rate in units of deaths per 100,000
people = 229.0**

In a country with a population of 6 million people, 60,000
deaths occurred during the year ending December 31, 2013. These
included 30,000 deaths from cholera in 100,000 people who were sick
with cholera.
a) What is the case fatality rate from cholera?
b) What is the cause-specific mortality rate from cholera in
2013?
c) What is the proportional mortality rate?

According to a health organization in a certain country, 21.8%
of the population smoked in 2008. In 2014, a random sample of 650
citizens of this country was selected, 129 of whom smoked.
Complete parts a through c below. a. Construct a 90% confidence
interval to estimate the actual proportion of people who smoked in
this country in 2014. A 90% confidence interval to estimate the
actual proportion has a lower limit of nothing and an upper limit
of nothing....

Assume a population of 100,000 people of whom 20 are sick with
disease X and in 1 year 18 of the 20 die from Disease X. What is
the mortality rate and what is the case-fatality rate? Again, show
the formula

In 2006, the population of the city of Portage was 174,001

of 3,020 persons died (1,651 males and 1,369 females); (b) 140
males had prostate cancer, 86 of whom were first diagnosed during
2006; (c) 53 persons with prostate cancer died from the disease;
and (d) 38,280 people (18,365 males and 19,915 females) were known
to have diabetes. Compute and interpret the rate and ratio measures

According to a census bureau,12.5% of the population in a
certain country changed addresses from 2008 to 2009. In 2010,14
out of a random sample of 200 citizens of this country said they
changed addresses during the previous year (in 2009). Complete
parts a through c below.
A)
Construct a
9999%
confidence interval to estimate the actual proportion of people
who changed addresses from 2009 to 2010.
A) 99% confidence interval to estimate the actual proportion
has a lower limit...

One percent of all individuals in a certain population are
carriers of a particular disease. A
diagnostic test for this disease has a 93% detection rate for
carriers and a 2% false positive rate. Suppose that an individual
is tested. What is the specificity of the test? What is the
probability that an individual who tests negative does not carry
the disease?

In a certain population, the probability that a person chosen at
random catches a pandemic disease is 0.05. Suppose that the
probability that the population catches the disease follows a
normal distribution.
(a) What is the probability that more than 45% of the
population catches the disease?
(b) What is the probability that less than 85% of the
population catches the disease?

Suppose that 30% of the population carry the gene for a certain
disease. We consider a random sample of 20 individuals. (a) [1
mark] What is the distribution of the number of people that carry
the gene for the disease? (b) [2 marks] In the observed sample, 8
subjects carry the gene. What is the estimated sample proportion of
gene carriers? (c) [2 marks] What is the exact probability that the
sample proportion of gene carriers is bigger than 25%?...
