Measuring the population impact

Measuring the population impact

(p.25) Chapter 4 Measuring the population impact
Evidence for Population Health

Richard F. Heller

Oxford University Press

This chapter reports on a number of ways to examine the impact of risk factors and intervention benefits on the population as a whole. It begins with a new set of “population impact measures” which have been specially designed for this purpose, and reflects on other measures which have been in use for longer. These new measures should be of value to the policy maker in determining the impact of a particular policy on a whole population.

Keywords:   population impact measures, number of events, population attributable risk, risk factors, intervention benefits
