The number of cases of acute sequelae that are present in a particular population at a given time. Acute sequelae are those sequelae with a duration of less than three months.
A statistical technique used to compare populations with different age structures, in which the characteristics of the populations are statistically transformed to match those of a reference population. Useful because relative over- or under-representation of different age groups can obscure comparisons of age-dependent diseases (e.g., ischemic heart disease or malaria) across populations.
