Homework Help: Epidemiology incidence

  1. Jun 25, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    “The risk of celiac disease at 5 years of age was 12.1% (95% CI, 9.2 to 15.0).”

    The question is: what do they mean with risk

    a,incidence rate
    b.cumulative incidence
    c.attributive risk
    d.population atrributive risk
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I dont understand how to use this little tekst to decide wether this is an incidence rate or cumulative incidence. Really frustrating.
