Prevalance Rate:

approx 1 in 33 or 3.00% or 8.2 million people in USA [Source statistic for calcuation: "3-4% of babies (NWHIC)" -- see also general information about data sources]

    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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