Prevalence and Incidence of Deuteranopia


About prevalence and incidence statistics: The term 'prevalence' of Deuteranopia usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Deuteranopia at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Deuteranopia refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Deuteranopia 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.

Prevalance of Deuteranopia: about 1% of white males
Prevalance Rate: approx 1 in 100 or 1.00% or 2.7 million people in USA [about data]
