  • What does a/How things an epidemiologist in academic setting?
    "How can I be sure about this specific exposure-effect, independent of the context of this person or population"
  • Incidence in closed population + what is a closed population
    Measure of disease occurrence:
    • incidence proportion (IP)
    • incidence rate (IR)


    closed population
    • bases ons fixed membership 
    • no one can be added 
    • but people may die, lost to follow-up etc
    • becomes smaller in time
