I am writing a paper on hep b among Asian Americans and I am confused as to what to refer to the statistics in the following CDC link as:

http://www.cdc.gov/hepatitis/Statistics/2009S...

Could I refer to the percetages as prevalence? I am a little confused.

Thanks in advance.

Prevalence rate. The proportion of the
population with the health condition or
disease in a given time. Expressed in 100,
1000, 10 000 or 100 000 population
I guess this means you can express it in percentage.
