when do we have to use the word coincident

Coincident is often used to describe events that happen at the same time - there may or may not be a causal link between the two. E.g. in the recession there was a coincident increase in crime were a strain on the police force. It would be simplistic to attribute the increase in crime to a recession, of course as there may ba many other factors involved.
