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