About statistics:

This page presents a variety of statistics about Motor neuron diseases. 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.
