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