About statistics:

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