About statistics:

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