Description In conclusion, a community is a sub-population that shares common characteristics, and epidemiology studies populations and sub-populations. Therefore, epidemiologists almost always study communities. There are many ways in which epidemiologists have used the term “community.” In this editorial, I mentioned some epidemiological uses of the term “community” such as inclusion criteria, unit of analysis, statistical analysis, community-based epidemiology and epidemiological surveillance. However, other uses may exist that I have not explored here.
En conclusión, una comunidad es una subpoblación que comparte características comunes, y la epidemiología estudia poblaciones y subpoblaciones. Por lo tanto, los epidemiólogos casi siempre estudian comunidades. Hay muchas maneras en que los epidemiólogos han usado el término "comunidad". En este editorial, mencioné algunos usos epidemiológicos del término "comunidad", como los criterios de inclusión, la unidad de análisis, el análisis estadístico, la epidemiología basada en la comunidad y la vigilancia epidemiológica. Sin embargo, pueden existir otros usos que no he explorado aquí.
