Prevalence and Incidence of Gastritis

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