    Dear Student,

    In a main epidemiological model, three things are considered, Susceptible (S), Infectious (I), Recovery (R).
    We will use counts of SIR to determine the incidence rate or infectious rate. We need to determine prevalence, incidence and incidence rate
    to estimate rate of administering treatment to prevent disease escalation.

    Percentage will be used to determine summarise the number, may be in different areas and recovery rate.
    Proportions ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution discusses kinds of epidemiological measurements/data used to collect/use in order to describe exposure levels/risk factors in everyday life. Further explains the use of counts, percentages, proportions, rates, and/or ratios. Then considers prevalence, incidence, and/or incidence rate, way of presenting data with specific examples/use cases.
