In epidemiology, the morbidity rate is a ratio that measures the incidence and prevalence of a specific disease. Within the framework of a given time period (typically, but not necessarily, one year) it gives the number of people who are afflicted with that disease per unit of population. It is usually expressed as a number of people afflicted per 1,000, 10,000, or 100,000 people.
