About statistics:

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