    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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