Statistics about Microcephaly

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