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