    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

    The term 'prevalence' of Spinal Muscular Atrophy type I usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Spinal Muscular Atrophy type I at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Spinal Muscular Atrophy type I refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Spinal Muscular Atrophy type I 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.
