About prevalence and incidence statistics:

The term 'prevalence' of Red-green color blindness usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Red-green color blindness at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Red-green color blindness refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Red-green color blindness 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.
