Prevalence and Incidence of Eastern equine encephalitis


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