- hi i have small problem rather its an epidemiological problem.

There is a population of 100000 and a sample of 10,000 has been

selected from it. out of the sample of 10,000 it was decided that

every one will be contacted to study the prevalence of Tuberculosis

but, unfortunately only 8000 could be calculated,and only 32 turned

out to be positive for AFB. The question is what is the prevalence of

Tuberculosis.

Now the answer will be either 3.2 or 4.0 as we can take denominator as

10,000 or 8,000.Now can any one tell what will be the answer?

(a) will we take 10,000 as denominator

(b) will take 8,000 as denominator

Please give reasons for taking the above choice. - hi dr pritu,I m dr manish rana from GMC SURAT,your institution.sir i m a first year resident , from mumbai. i have heard about u a lot, espsecially the royal life which u lived in GMC Surat.its nice tobe im touch with sir.i had been to delhi for the national conference, but did not know about your whereabouts, or i would have definitely meet u.your messages r really good, please do keep sending these.
