    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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