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:

1. First, determine the number of survivors.
• The number of survivors is given as: 500.
2. Next, determine the number of people that contracted the disease.
• The number of people that contracted the disease is provided as: 2000.
3. 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 = ?
