    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

    The term 'prevalence' of Adult respiratory distress syndrome usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Adult respiratory distress syndrome at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Adult respiratory distress syndrome refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Adult respiratory distress syndrome 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.
