The ratio of probability of occurrence to nonoccurrence of an event.
[pl. of odd, fr. M.E. odde, fr. O.Norse oddi, odd number]
Farlex Partner Medical Dictionary © Farlex 2012


In statistics, the probability that an event may appear or occur. This probability is estimated from known rates of occurrence of the event in a specific setting, e.g., from the known number of patients with a particular disease on a particular island. In practice most patients do not live on islands, and many have diseases whose presentation varies from the norm. The use of odds in health care always implies some degree of probability rather than of proof.
