Conditions by Incidence

Conditions here are listed according to incidence, which is the annual number of new cases. In most cases, the incidence rates refer to the USA or other industrialized nations. This measure differs from "prevalence", which is the cumulative number of people currently affected. No prevalence data is used in the computations below. For comparison, see conditions by people affected (prevalence or incidence), and conditions by prevalence. See also details about prevalence and incidence statistics for more information.
