Enter the number of survivors and the number of people that contracted the disease into the Survival Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Survival Rate.

## Survival Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Survival Rate.

**SVR = #S / #D * 100**

- Where SVR is the Survival Rate (%)
- #S is the number of survivors
- #D is the number of people that contracted the disease

## How to Calculate Survival Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Survival Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the number of survivors.
- The number of survivors is given as: 500.

- Next, determine the number of people that contracted the disease.
- The number of people that contracted the disease is provided as: 2000.

- Finally, calculate the Survival Rate using the equation above:

SVR = #S / #D * 100

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

SVR = 500 / 2000 * 100 = 25.00 (%)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

number of survivors = 600

number of people that contracted the disease = 1800

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

SVR = #S / #D * 100** = ?**
