In brief: Accurate
Statistical probability is hard to relate accurately, but the lag time frm exposure to disease is quite long.
It is done by relative risk looking at cases observed versus expected, a valid but hard to understand epideiologic technique. There is no question of the validity but the absolute risk is harder to estimate.
