Abstract

A method for estimating the intervals for the number of patients with intractable diseases from nationwide epidemiological surveys was developed under the assumption that response is independent of frequency of patients. This method is based on data utilizing the number of response hospitals classified by their reported number of patients. The approximate 95% confidence intervals of numbers of several intractable diseases patients were estimated using this method.
