About statistics:

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