Prevalence and Incidence of Enteritis


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

Incidence (annual) of Enteritis: 12 per 1000 (NHIS95: "enteritis or colitis")
Incidence Rate: approx 1 in 83 or 1.20% or 3.3 million people in USA [about data]
