Statistics by Country for Celiac Disease


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Celiac Disease: The word 'prevalence' of Celiac Disease usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Celiac Disease at any given time (i.e. people with Celiac Disease). The term 'incidence' of Celiac Disease means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Celiac Disease diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Celiac Disease). 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 Celiac Disease: 1 in 250 Americans estimated rate; actual diagnosis rate is 1 in 4,700 Americans; 1 in 250 in Italy; 1 in 300 in Ireland; 20,000 diagnosed (Reader's Digest Feb 2004)
Prevalance Rate for Celiac Disease: approx 1 in 249 or 0.40% or 1.1 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Celiac Disease to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Celiac Disease to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Celiac Disease are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Celiac Disease in any region:
