The term 'prevalence' of Acrogeria (Gottron Type) usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Acrogeria (Gottron Type) at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Acrogeria (Gottron Type) refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Acrogeria (Gottron Type) 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.
