Quick Reference

A numerical statement of the portion of the population remaining alive at a specified time after a life-threatening exposure or event. It may be a true rate, but often it is a number rather than a true rate, because the population at risk, the time and duration of exposure, and/or other necessary parameters to calculate a true rate cannot be accurately ascertained.
