Prevalence and Incidence of Clubfoot


About prevalence and incidence statistics: The term 'prevalence' of Clubfoot usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Clubfoot at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Clubfoot refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Clubfoot diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.

Incidence (annual) of Clubfoot: about 1 per 1,000 births1.
Incidence Rate: approx 1 in 1,000 or 0.10% or 272,000 people in USA [about data]
