  1. A study was devised to show the relationship between prevalent hypertension and prevalent cardio vascular disease (CVD) in a heart study among a sample of 3986 participants. The following results were obtained for prevalent hypertension and prevalent CVD.

 

  No CVD Have CVD Total
No hypertension 2655 300 2955
Hypertension 750 281 1031
Total 3405 581 3986

 

 

Calculate the following and interpret your results:

 

  1. Point prevalence of participants with CVD
  2. Population attribution risk of participants
  3. Odds ratio for the participants
  4. Risk difference of CVD for persons with as compared to those without hypertension.
  5. Relative risk of CVD for persons with as compared to those without hypertension.

 

 

  1. A study was devised to estimate the mean total cholesterol level in adults 30 to 60 years old. A sample of 12 participants are selected, and their total cholesterol levels are measured as follows.
x (x – mean) (x – mean)2
120    
230    
120    
121    
200    
231    
235    
221    
120    
212    
221    
120    
Total = Mode = Variance  =
Mean = Median = Standard deviation  =

 

 

Fill in the table by inserting

  1. Total cholesterol levels
  2. Average or mean
  3. Variance
  4. Standard deviation
  5. Mode
  6. Median

 

Note:

 

Variance  where n represents the total number of data (x values)

 

Variance numerator =∑(x – mean)2   = Sum of (x – mean)2

 

Standard deviation  = square root of the variance
