The Incidence of Lung Cancer and the Role of Smoking
Based on the results achieved through a hypothetical study conducted by an independent organization, discuss the incidence of lung cancer.
In a hypothetical study conducted by an independent organization studying lung cancer, they found that out of 2,533 people, 315 were diagnosed with lung cancer. Two hundred ninety-six of the participants diagnosed with lung cancer smoked. Of the participants who did not have lung cancer, 1259 did not smoke. What is the incidence of lung cancer? What is the risk ratio (RR) of smoking? What is the attributable risk (AR) of smoking? What is the interpretation of the AR? What is the population-attributable risk (APt)? What is the attributable proportion among the exposed (APe)?
