Annual Proportion of An Incident Cohort Progressing Under An Exponential Distribution. In this example, an incident cohort at year 0 progresses to a subsequent health
state at an annual rate of 0.078, corresponding to a constant annual risk of 7.5%.
This results in 7.5% (1*.075) of the original cohort progressing in year 1. By the
start of year 10, 49.6% of the original cohort remains in the initial health state,
and only 3.7% (.496*.075) progress during year 10. Regardless of the value for risk
chosen, the absolute proportion progressing will be highest during year 1 and decline
steadily with time. For simplicity, mortality and disease regression are not modeled
here.
