Statistics by Country for Cold sores


advertisement

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Cold sores: 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 Cold sores 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 Cold sores 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 Cold sores in that region.

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

Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Cold sores to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Cold sores to the populations of various countries and regions.
