Yes. Otherwise the cumulative numbers would be equal to adding the injury rate of each each previous week together.Does prevalence take into account returning players or simply cumulative injuries?
The cumulative number is the percentage of players injured that specific week. The increase makes sense since plenty of injuries are long term or season ending. So it increases even though the weekly rate is basically static.
So the longer the season, the higher the percentage will be as we enter the playoffs.
