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