1. Measure(s) of Disease/Injury Occurrence

Topic: The Impact of Swine Flu on Tourism in the United States

For this case, in the population, what measure(s) of disease/injury occurrence and frequency (counts, prevalence, incidence/risk, mean/variance, median, mode, rates, etc.) would you use? How would you measure the level of exposure that may be associated with the disease/injury occurrence? What are the pros and cons of using the measure(s)? Do you expect any barriers in getting data to calculate the measure(s)?

# For this case, in the population, what measure(s) of disease/injury occurrence and frequency (counts, prevalence, incidence/risk, mean/variance, median, mode, rates, etc.) would you use?

The Mean reflects the values of each score to the distribution whereas the Median is based largely on the score where the midpoint of the distribution falls without regard for the particular value of many of the scores. The Mode is a simple measure of central tendency and reflects only the most frequently occurring counts. The mean, median and mode are sensitive to different aspects of a group of counts.

Basically, in order to determine ...
