Pooled Prevalence Calculator

This site has been developed with funding from the Australian Biosecurity Cooperative Research Centre for Emerging Infectious Disease. The site is intended for use primarily by participating CRC members and other researchers involved in estimating disease prevalence through structured surveys. The calculators provided here are particularly designed for estimating prevalence where samples are tested individually or in groups (pools) or where one or more tests are used with imperfect sensitivity and/or specificity.
