Statistics by Country for Cardiovascular diseases

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Cardiovascular diseases: The word 'prevalence' of Cardiovascular diseases usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Cardiovascular diseases at any given time (i.e. people with Cardiovascular diseases). The term 'incidence' of Cardiovascular diseases means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Cardiovascular diseases diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Cardiovascular diseases). 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 Cardiovascular diseases: 61,800,000 cases in the USA (American Heart Association, 2004)
Prevalance Rate for Cardiovascular diseases: approx 1 in 4 or 22.72% or 61.8 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Cardiovascular diseases to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Cardiovascular diseases to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Cardiovascular diseases are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Cardiovascular diseases in any region:
