Statistics by Country for Botulism food poisoning

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Botulism food poisoning: 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 Botulism food poisoning 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 Botulism food poisoning 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 Botulism food poisoning in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Botulism food poisoning: The word 'prevalence' of Botulism food poisoning usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Botulism food poisoning at any given time (i.e. people with Botulism food poisoning). The term 'incidence' of Botulism food poisoning means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Botulism food poisoning diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Botulism food poisoning). 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.

Incidence Rate for Botulism food poisoning: approx 1 in 1,766,233 or 0.00% or 153 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Botulism food poisoning to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Botulism food poisoning to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Botulism food poisoning are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Botulism food poisoning in any region:
