About statistics:

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