  1. how would you compare 125 pregnancies in a pop of 112,085?
    125/112,085 x 100,000. gives you pregnancies per 100,000 people.
  2. what is crude death rate?
    # of deaths per year/total pop mid-year x1000
  3. what is cause specific death rate?
    # of deaths from that cause per year/total pop at mid-year x1000
  4. what is age-specific death rate?
    # of deaths by a certain cause per year/total mid-year pop of people of a certain age x1000
  5. what is maternal death rate?
    maternal deaths over live births x1000
  6. what is infantmortality rate?
    deaths of children <1 over live births that year x1000
  7. what is neonatal death rate?
    deaths <28 days over live births AND fetal deaths that year x1000
  8. what is fetal death rate?
    deaths during 20-28 weeks over live births AND fetal deaths that year.
  9. morbidity vs incidence?

    correctly IDs those that do have the disease
  19. Epi concept: what is specificity?
    ID those that I do not have the disease.
  20. Epi concept: susceptibility
    chances of getting the disease if exposed.
  21. what is crude death rate?
