Enter the total number of new cases and the total number of people in the population at risk to determine the cumulative incidence.

## Cumulative Incidence Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the cumulative incidence.

CI = NC / TP

- Where CI is the cumulative incidence
- NC is the number of new cases of a disease
- Tp is the total population at risk

## Cumulative Incidence Definition

A cumulative incidence is a ratio of the number of new cases of a disease to the total population that could be exposed to the disease.

## Cumulative Incidence Example

How to calculate cumulative incidence?

**First, determine the number of new cases.**Measure the total number of new cases of the disease.

**Next, determine the total population.**Calculate the total population at risk.

**Finally, calculate the cumulative incidence.**Calculate the cumulative incidence using the equation above.

## FAQ
