## Attributable Risk Formula

The following formula can be used to calculate the attributable risk.

AR = I_e - I_u

- Where AR is the attributable risk
- I
_{e}is the incidence rate in the exposed group - I
_{u}is the incidence rate in the non-exposed group

To calculate the attributable risk, subtract the incidence rate in the non-exposed group from the rate in the exposed group.

## Attributable Risk Definition

Attributable risk is the difference between the incidence rate in an exposed group to a non-exposed group.
