Statistics by Country for Alcoholism

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Alcoholism: 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 Alcoholism 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 Alcoholism 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 Alcoholism in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Alcoholism: The word 'prevalence' of Alcoholism usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Alcoholism at any given time (i.e. people with Alcoholism). The term 'incidence' of Alcoholism means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Alcoholism diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Alcoholism). 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 Alcoholism: estimated 15.1 million people: 15.1 million alcohol-abusing or alcohol-dependent individuals and 4.6 million are women (NWHIC); nearly 14 million Americans (NIAAA)
Prevalance Rate for Alcoholism: approx 1 in 18 or 5.55% or 15.1 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Alcoholism to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Alcoholism to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Alcoholism are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Alcoholism in any region:
