  1. Estimating gallstone incidence from prevalence data.

    Article - En anglais

    Because incidence data for gallstones are generally unavailable, we have used a previously described epidemiologic method to estimate age-specific incidence rates from published gallstone prevalence data in seven populations.

    Yearly incidence rates ranged from a low of 1 in 1000 for the youngest men to 19 in 1000 for the oldest women.

    An overall pattern of increasing incidence of disease with increasing age was observed.
