Statistics by Country for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis


advertisement

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: 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 Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 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 Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 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 Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: The word 'prevalence' of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis at any given time (i.e. people with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). The term 'incidence' of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). 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 Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: 30,000 cases of ALS in America (Robert Packard Research Center at John Hopkins Hospital)
Prevalance Rate for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: approx 1 in 9,066 or 0.01% or 30,000 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in any region:
