Term: Rate Difference
Last Updated: 2015-05-12
Rate difference is the difference of the rate of disease or death between the group exposed to the rate among the group that was not exposed.
In Martens et al., 2015, the group exposed were those who "ever smoked" and the group that was not exposed were those who "never smoked".
