Statistics about Infectious Diarrhea


advertisement

About statistics: This page presents a variety of statistics about Infectious Diarrhea. The term 'prevalence' of Infectious Diarrhea usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Infectious Diarrhea at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Infectious Diarrhea refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Infectious Diarrhea 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.
