Statistics by Country for Asthma

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Asthma: The word 'prevalence' of Asthma usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Asthma at any given time (i.e. people with Asthma). The term 'incidence' of Asthma means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Asthma diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Asthma). 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 Asthma: 6.4% USA (NIAID); 17 million Americans (NIAID) including 5 million children; 8.1 million children (NHIS-97), 51 per 1000 - NHIS95; 14.5 million; 5% of population (NWHIC); 14.9 million in 1995 (NHLBI)
Prevalance Rate for Asthma: approx 1 in 15 or 6.40% or 17.4 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Asthma to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Asthma to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Asthma are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Asthma in any region:
