Statistics by Country for Back pain

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Back pain: The word 'prevalence' of Back pain usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Back pain at any given time (i.e. people with Back pain). The term 'incidence' of Back pain means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Back pain diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Back pain). 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 Back pain: 6 million cases annually (unreliable estimate)
Prevalance Rate for Back pain: approx 1 in 45 or 2.21% or 6 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Back pain to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Back pain to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Back pain are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Back pain in any region:
