Topic - Probability

spearing05 - on 03 Feb 2013
Another question for the font of all knowledge. I'm looking at calculating risk and having a little problem.

If I say that 1000 people are exposed to a risk every year for 10 years and 1 dies during that time what is the risk per person per year?

I'm ok with the overall risk - 1000 people x 10 years/1 death ie 1:10000 or 1 x 10^-4

How do you then work out the risk per year? Am I right in thinking it is this number times 1/10?

Thanks in advance
