The cost of preventing an event (COPE statistic) estimates the cost of preventing an event, starting with the number needed to treat (NNT).


(1) number needed to treat (NNT)

(2) number of years of treatment needed to prevent 1 event

(3) cost per day of the treatment



= (NNT) * (years) * (365 days per year) * (cost per day)
