About statistics:

This page presents a variety of statistics about Chromosome 17 trisomy. The term 'prevalence' of Chromosome 17 trisomy usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Chromosome 17 trisomy at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Chromosome 17 trisomy refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Chromosome 17 trisomy 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.
