Cohort Study → "incidence study" Sample of people either free of outcome of interest and then followed over time as it emerges, or all diseased then followed for outcomes of that disease.. p. 64, All participants in a cohort study could experience the outcome of interest. 81 See Table 5.2 p. 84 "Advantages and Disadvantages of Cohort Studies"
Pretest Probability → The prevalence of disease in a specified group of subjects.
Attributable Risk → The absolute difference in the rate of events between the control and the intervention group. ( same as ARR)
PPV → Probability of disease in a patient with a positive test result PV+=true positive/(true positive + false positive) p. 39
