Incidence vs. Prevalence


Incidence and prevalence measure the extent of a disease in a population. Both terms are often used interchangeably. However, they are not similar . Incidence provides information about change in status from non-diseased to diseased and limited to new cases that are still surviving over a specified period of time. However, prevalence provides information on the overall disease occurrence.
