Ratio

25 Dec

There are numerous ratios in epidemiology, some of them being called the probability ratio, the proportion ratio, or in studies of existing disease, the prevalence ratio. Others can be called Odds ratio or relative risk or prevalence rate ratios or also risk ratio and last but not least hazard ratio. All those ratios aim to assess the risk difference between two sets of binomial health data. Below I selected a few articles with the aim to understand who is who among all those ratios.
