background image 9/19/2016 Exam 1 | Evernote Web 4/7 Rate Adjustments Rate base: the rate of pay per unit of time, as by the hour, or per piece
Crude rate: population
Specific: subgroup
Adjusted: ONLY for comparison purposes
******mid interval population size: counts during middle year
cause­specific death rate: cancer deaths/ rate base
infant mortality rate: (live births/mid interval population) * rate base
total fertility rate: 5 * (Σ Age Specific Fertility Rates )
    Step 1: (birth for category/women per category) * rate base Why do we need to adjust rates? Because not all populations/samples are equivalent. Populations vary by demographic variables that can BIAS the calculation and interpretation of rates.  You only need to adjust rates when you want to compare rates between two or more groups that are demographically different Direct Standardization: 8 steps
