Understanding the characteristics of person, place, and time is
crucial for the practice of descriptive epidemiology. For each of
these categories, describe the key characteristics and explain
why these characteristics are important for assessing variations
in health and disease.
PLEASE EXPLAIN WHETHER YOU AGREE WITH MY
CLASSMATE RESPONSE TO THE ABOVE QUESTION AND
WHY? (A MININUM OF 125 WORDS)
CLASSMATE’S POST
Person- Descriptive characteristics relating to age, sex/gender,
marital status, race/ethnicity and religion are aspects that
researchers consider when practicing descriptive epidemiology.
These aspects may impact exposures to a disease through a
person's lifestyle, behavior, genetic predisposition or even
access to healthcare. For instance, when it concerns age- it may
impact a latency period of exposure to a disease or
environmental factor then the subsequent illness' symptoms
coming forward. Age and sex/gender are usually one of the most
major attributes for illness patterns.
Place- Place is considered for descriptive epidemiology due to
the conditions of climate, dietary habits/food availability,
cultural/religion factors as well as access to health care.
Without a doubt, looking at the mapping of diseases, variations
are seen across the globe.
Time- For time trends- researchers look to see cyclic
fluctuations, point epidemics, secular time trends and
clustering. I did a report for my website once on the trends of
fatal measles outbreaks. These "fatal" outbreaks in history could
be traced to certain times/conditions when the disease would
cause fatalities rather than be milder in nature. So, fluctuations
in the cycle of diseases show increases and decreases depending
on whether the person's lifestyle changes, climate changes, and
when certain diseases have a higher virulence of an outbreak.
Clustering is when a there is an unusual grouping of "health
events" or a disease outbreak within a population. If you were
to point it on a map- you could see a cluster of an outbreak.
