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