Prevalence and Incidence of Allergic rhinitis


advertisement

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