About statistics:

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