About statistics:

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