Surveillance Measures in Epidemiology
Epidemiology has a variety of sub-disciplines. Each of these sub-disciplines has different measures they use to determine the severity or communicability of various diseases. The two classic measures are incidence and prevalence. However, there are other measures of disease measurement, which can include:
Case Fatality Rate
Proportionate Mortality Rate
Age Specific Death Rate
Direct Age Adjustment
Indirect Age Adjustment
Years of Potential Life Lost
Outbreak Specific Calculations
R0 (R naught or Reproductive Ratio)
Attack Rate (usually used for foodborne pathogens)
Secondary Attack Rate (used for any communicable disease to describe the percentage of secondary cases)
In this discussion, you will select top 3 diseases in the U.S. and explain each on of them with minimum of 500 words each. You will need to search the Morbidity and Mortality Week Report, Emerging Infectious Disease Journal, Preventing Chronic Diseases Journal.
