Statistics by Country for Chronic Illness

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Chronic Illness: The word 'prevalence' of Chronic Illness usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Chronic Illness at any given time (i.e. people with Chronic Illness). The term 'incidence' of Chronic Illness means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Chronic Illness diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Chronic Illness). 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 Chronic Illness: 90 million people in USA (CDC)
Prevalance Rate for Chronic Illness: approx 1 in 3 or 33.09% or 90 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Chronic Illness to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Chronic Illness to the populations of various countries and regions.
