Rates Versus Counts:

Rates and counts are often used by epidemiologists to describe disease in a population. Though both rates and counts can be fairly simple to calculate, it is important to understand how they are used, how they differ and how to interpret them.

Counts, also called frequencies, are fairly straightforward. Counts are the total number of events that occur in a defined period of time. The total number of cases of Salmonellosis reported in Houston during 2000 would be an example of a count or frequency, e.g. in 2000, 227 cases of Salmonellosis were reported.

Rates are the number of events that occur in a defined period of time, divided by the average population at risk of that event. In order to estimate the rate of Salmonellosis in Houston during 2000, divide the number of reports of Salmonellosis in 2000 by the population of Houston in 2000. This is roughly equivalent to calculating the percent of people with Salmonellosis in Houston in 2000, e.g. cases in 2000 Population in 2000 = 227 1,953,631 = 0.00012.
