Use and misuse of population attributable fractions

for partitioning risk and evaluating disease prevention: a practical guide.
This input would be useful for either calculating the attributable fraction
of prevalent asthma for the specific population, or to be included in a meta-analysis of relevant studies.
A number of countries, including Canada, have used attributable fractions
(AFs) to estimate the number of deaths caused by smoking, more often referred to as smoking-attributable mortality (SAM).
In order to calculate the attributable fraction
(AF), RR' was used in the classic attributable risk calculation: (20)
Lung cancer had the largest attributable fraction
due to smoking.
Moreover, the attributable fraction
of childhood ADHD due to ETS exposure is unknown.

The presence of HPV in virtually all cervical cancers implies the highest worldwide attributable fraction
so far reported for a specific cause of any major human cancer," according to the lead author of the new study, professor Dr.
Our objective was to determine the population attributable fraction
(PAF) of childhood asthma in Canada due to modifiable environmental exposures, including particulates, nitrogen dioxide (N[O.
