Statistics by Country for Autoimmune diseases

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Autoimmune diseases: These statistics are calculated extrapolations of various prevalence or incidence rates against the populations of a particular country or region. The statistics used for prevalence/incidence of Autoimmune diseases are typically based on US, UK, Canadian or Australian statistics. This extrapolation calculation is automated and does not take into account any genetic, cultural, environmental, social, racial or other differences across the various countries and regions for which the extrapolated Autoimmune diseases statistics below refer to. As such, these extrapolations may be highly inaccurate (especially for developing or third-world countries) and only give a general indication (or even a meaningless indication) as to the actual prevalence or incidence of Autoimmune diseases in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Autoimmune diseases: The word 'prevalence' of Autoimmune diseases usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Autoimmune diseases at any given time (i.e. people with Autoimmune diseases). The term 'incidence' of Autoimmune diseases means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Autoimmune diseases diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Autoimmune diseases). Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.



Prevalance of Autoimmune diseases: 8,511,845 people in the USA 1996 1
Prevalance Rate for Autoimmune diseases: approx 1 in 31 or 3.13% or 8.5 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Autoimmune diseases to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Autoimmune diseases to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Autoimmune diseases are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Autoimmune diseases in any region:
