Example sentences for: age-conditional

How can you use “age-conditional” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Lifetime and age-conditional probability (risk) estimates of being diagnosed with cancer are derived using life-table methods.

  • Given that current rates are unlikely to remain constant over an extended period of time, and that persons are more likely interested in their chance of developing the cancer from their current ages onward, short-term, age-conditional probability estimates are perhaps more relevant [ 10 ] . Both types of probability estimates are reported in this paper.

  • In addition to the limitations stated above, because it is impractical to expect cross-sectional rates upon which lifetime and age-conditional cancer probabilities are based to remain constant in the long run, lifetime probabilities of cancer are less reliable than shorter term, age-conditional probability estimates.

  • Similarly, an accurate measure of the burden of this cancer, in terms of lifetime and age-conditional probabilities of developing the disease, also requires a population correction to reflect those women at risk.

  • A complete description of the method for deriving lifetime and age-conditional probability estimates of being diagnosed with cancer is given elsewhere [ 8 ] . Probability estimates of developing cancer are reported across the age span and interpreted as the probability that the average child born today will be diagnosed with the disease by age x . This statistic assumes that the current rates upon which the probability estimates are based will remain constant over the child's lifetime.
