About statistics:

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