4

What is infant mortality rate?

Number of deaths <12 months age per 1000 live births.

5

NNT

=1/ARR

(absolute risk reduction)

ARR = CER-EER

CER = events in control group/total control group

EER = events in experiment group/total

6

NNH

=1/AR

(Attributable risk)

AR =EER-CER

EER= Experiment event rate

(Events experiments grp/total experiment group)

CER = Control event rate

(Events control group/total control group)
