Quick Reference

The risk or proportion of cases of a disease or other outcome of interest among exposed persons in a defined population that can be attributed to an exposure of interest. The term implies a risk, i.e., a probability, but attributable risks are often expressed more loosely as proportions or fractions of the total risk of interest that can be attributed to exposure. For protective exposures, risk may be associated with the absence of exposure and measured by prevented risk (or fraction).
