HCA 402: Skills
Assessment #1: Calculating Case Rates

All case rates have two things in common, 1) A numerator or case
count, and 2) a denominator (population). Calculating case rates isn't rocket
science, but obtaining accurate numbers to describe a populations' health can
be quite a challenge. So, let??s start with a case with available numbers.

A grade school asthma study was performed at Dolphin View
Elementary. There were 120 asthma cases in a school population of 1,500. During
the calendar year 2011, of the 120 cases total, 20 cases were newly diagnosed.
There was 1 death during the year studies due to acute status asthmaticus.

1) Calculate the disease prevalence, disease
incidence and mortality rate for the school.




Dolphin
View Elementary Asthma Study: (Illustrative) Meyer (2012)




Epidemiology Case Counts = 120


Population = 1,500


New Cases = 20

2) How may the

monitor and improve the health of Dolphin View Elementary students and its
community at large?
