About statistics:

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