1.      Refer to Table 5-3 on page 99. What are possible reasons for the observed differences in death rates between those of Hispanic origin and those not of Hispanic origin?

2.      Refer to the following estimated statistics for the US and Malaysia in 2005:

US:

Crude mortality rate = 800 per 100,000

 Crude birth rate = 14 per 1,000

 Life expectancy = 77.7 years

Malaysia:

Crude mortality rate = 500 per 100,000

Crude birth rate = 23 per 1,000

Life expectancy = 72.2 years

Can the lower crude mortality rate in Malaysia be explained by the fact that the US has a larger population? What factors could explain differences in birth rates and life expectancy?

3.      Which of these is an example of a ratio:

    Number of men who died from heart disease in a given year divided by the corresponding male population in the same year.

    Number of men who died from heart disease divided by the number of women who died from heart disease.

    Number of women taking an epidemiology class divided by the number of students in the class.

4.      How does prevalence proportion differ from incidence?

5.      What is the death-to-case ratio and how is it different from the case-fatality rate?
