Decisive the prevalence, incidence, risk of developing, total number of person-years at risk and incidence rate of cervical cancer.

b) describe How many women were at risk of developing cervical cancer before being screened in
1) 1999 and
3) describe what was the incidence of cervical cancer in these women and is this a measure of cumulative incidence or incidence rate?
Presume that on average each of the 30 women who were diagnosed with cervical carcinoma did so half-way through during the five-year period.
4) Compute the total number of person-years at risk of developing cervical cancer during the five years.
