This solution analyzes real data regarding the number of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) cases in the UK. The annual number of deaths in different age groups is shown, together with the total number of deaths. The solution explains how the curves can be compared, and the conclusions that can be drawn regarding the course of vCJD infection in different age groups. It will be of interest both for studies on vCJD and disease epidemiology in general.

Figure 2 is a plot of number of deaths per year by birth cohort (i.e. those victims born before 1970, those born in the 1970s and those born in the 1980s). Table 1 gives the median age at death of UK victims of definite or probable vCJD for those years for which a median could sensibly be calculated. The overall median age at d
