Statistics by Country for Anxiety Disorders

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Anxiety Disorders: The word 'prevalence' of Anxiety Disorders usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Anxiety Disorders at any given time (i.e. people with Anxiety Disorders). The term 'incidence' of Anxiety Disorders means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Anxiety Disorders diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Anxiety Disorders). 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 Anxiety Disorders: estimated 16.4% adults (USSG); 19.1 million American adults (NIMH); 13.3% of adults (NIMH)
Prevalance Rate for Anxiety Disorders: approx 1 in 6 or 16.40% or 44.6 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Anxiety Disorders to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Anxiety Disorders to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Anxiety Disorders are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Anxiety Disorders in any region:
