About statistics:

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