About statistics:

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