Statistics about Pubic lice

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