Using the data from the New York University Women’s Health study (1985), describe the public health problem in terms of magnitude, person, time and place.

Using the data from the New York University Women’s Health study (1985), describe the public health problem in terms of magnitude, person, time and place. Discuss the basic epidemiology measures used in the study. Specifically what measure of risk was used? How was risk calculated? (Hint: Consider a 2 by 2 table to display the data). Do you agree with the authors’ conclusions? What would you infer from the data? Why? see data below: The New York University Women’s Health Study enrolled 14,274 women ages 35 to 65 who attended a mammography breast-screening clinic in New York City between 1985 […]
