Looks like we have another person who doesn't understand what the word "rate" means and why you would use it versus counting numbers.


You are correct in that we have a person that does not understand the word rate, and it is you. I deal with rates every single day. And just for info, you do not adjust a rate for population as it IS the adjustment for population.
