A variety of ways to express the incidence and prevalence of sports injury exists, of which the number of injuries per 1,000 hours of play is the most commonly used. There is no clear answer as to which description is the best. Each description, however, has its own benefits and drawbacks. Based upon existing published data this chapter shows what the different ways of expressing the outcome measure can do to the results. Additionally, the chapter shows ways of expressing and calculating the spread of the outcome measures, e.g. standard deviation and 95% confidence interval.

Keywords:   injury incidence, exposure, standard deviation, confidence interval, prevalence
