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