About statistics:

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