Prevalence and Incidence of Sedative dependence


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