About statistics:

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