In a nursing home, a program is launched in 2005 to assess the extent to which its residents are affected by diabetes. Each resident has a blood test, and 48 of the 625 residents have diabetes in 2005. Residents who did not already have diabetes were again tested in 2010, and 57 residents had diabetes.
• a. What is the prevalence of diabetes in 2005?
• b. What is the cumulative incidence of diabetes over 5 years?
• c. What is the prevalence of diabetes in 2010 (assume that none of the residents in 2005 have died or left the nursing home)?
