About prevalence and incidence statistics:
The term 'prevalence' of Transplants usually refers to the estimated population
of people who are managing Transplants at any given time.
The term 'incidence' of Transplants refers to the annual diagnosis rate,
or the number of new cases of Transplants 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.
