RATE

Written by

A rate is the frequency with which a health event occurs in a defined population. The components of the rate are the numbers of deaths or cases (the numerator), the population at risk (denominator), and the specified time in which the events occurred. All rates are ratios, calculated by dividing the numerator by the denominator.
