Statistics by Country for Constipation


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Constipation: The word 'prevalence' of Constipation usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Constipation at any given time (i.e. people with Constipation). The term 'incidence' of Constipation means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Constipation diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Constipation). 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 Constipation: 4.4 million people in the USA 1983-87 (Digestive diseases in the United States: Epidemiology and Impact NIH Publication No. 94-1447, NIDDK, 1994)
Prevalance Rate for Constipation: approx 1 in 61 or 1.62% or 4.4 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Constipation to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Constipation to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Constipation are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Constipation in any region:
