    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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