Motor neuron diseases: Rare Disease

Motor neuron diseases is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Motor neuron diseases, or a subtype of Motor neuron diseases, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.

Incidence (annual) of Motor neuron diseases:

92 annual cases in Victoria 1996 (DHS-VIC) ... see also overview of Motor neuron diseases.

Incidence Rate:

approx 1 in 49,566 or 0.00% or 5,487 people in USA [Source statistic for calcuation: "92 annual cases in Victoria 1996 (DHS-VIC)" -- see also general information about data sources]

    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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