About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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