Hello. I know the prevalence of heart failure in 50 year olds is 1 out of 100 / 1 % but what is the prevalence in 20 year olds? It tells me 0.3%3/1000

More than age. Different cultural and genetic populations will vary perhaps. More than age matters and when it is so rare an event, one could argue that it's not meaningful - but here's more info.

Not an issue. Prevalence is important only for public health researchers and officials. For the individual, the concern should be do you have risk factors and symptoms of CHF. If you havensigns and symptoms of CHF, then you should investigate the cause further.
