In brief: Incidence varies

The first thing to understand is that many antibiotics have the potential for causing c.
Diff infection. The general health of the individual effects this rate as does the environment where they are treated and if the person is immuno-compromised. Because of these factors, an exact rate cannot be given. For a young, healthy person being treated on an outpatient basis, the rate is fairly low.
