# Relative Risk Calculator

Instructions: This calculator computes the Relative Risk for a 2×2 crosstabulation, which measures the ratio of the risk of developing a condition (or disease) for those exposed to a risk factor, versus the the risk of exhibiting the condition for those that are not exposed to the risk factor. Please type the 2×2 table data and also indicate the confidence level required to compute the confidence interval for the Relative Risk (RR)

#### More about the Relative Risk (RR)

The relative risk (RR) corresponds to ratio of the risk of developing a disease (or condition) for those exposed to a certain risk factor, versus the the risk of developing the disease (or condition) for those not exposed to the risk factor, which is typically used in Cohort Studies.

Let us consider the folllowing 2×2 crosstabulation:

Disease
No Disease
Exposed
$$a$$
$$b$$
Not Exposed
$$c$$
$$d$$

The Relative Risk (RR) of having the developing a disease for those exposed to a risk factor versus those not exposed to the risk factor is computed using the following formula:

$RR = \frac{a/(a+b)}{c/(c+d)}$
