Prevalence and Incidence of Bronchopulmonary dysplasia
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia: Rare Disease
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of
Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health
(NIH). This means that Bronchopulmonary dysplasia, or a subtype of Bronchopulmonary dysplasia,
affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
Ophanet, who are a consortium of European partners,
currently defines a condition rare when if affects 1 person per 2,000.
They list Bronchopulmonary dysplasia as a "rare disease".

About prevalence and incidence statistics:
The term 'prevalence' of Bronchopulmonary dysplasia usually refers to the estimated population
of people who are managing Bronchopulmonary dysplasia at any given time.
The term 'incidence' of Bronchopulmonary dysplasia refers to the annual diagnosis rate,
or the number of new cases of Bronchopulmonary dysplasia 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.
