Prevalence and Incidence of Oculocutaneous albinism
Prevalance of Oculocutaneous albinism:
estimated 1 per 20,000 people suffer from oculocutaneous albinism, Genetic Home Reference website ... see also overview of Oculocutaneous albinism.
approx 1 in 20,000 or 0.00% or 13,600 people in USA [Source statistic for calcuation: "estimated 1 per 20,000 people suffer from oculocutaneous albinism, Genetic Home Reference website" -- see also general information about data sources]
Ophanet, who are a consortium of European partners,
currently defines a condition rare when if affects 1 person per 2,000.
They list Oculocutaneous albinism as a "rare disease".

About prevalence and incidence statistics:
The term 'prevalence' of Oculocutaneous albinism usually refers to the estimated population
of people who are managing Oculocutaneous albinism at any given time.
The term 'incidence' of Oculocutaneous albinism refers to the annual diagnosis rate,
or the number of new cases of Oculocutaneous albinism 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.
