Statistics by Country for Digestive system cancer

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Digestive system cancer: 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 Digestive system cancer 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 Digestive system cancer 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 Digestive system cancer in that region.

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



Incidence (annual) of Digestive system cancer: 255,640 new cases for digestive system cancer in the US 2004 (Cancer Facts and Figures, American Cancer Society, 2004)
Incidence Rate for Digestive system cancer: approx 1 in 1,063 or 0.09% or 255,640 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Digestive system cancer to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Digestive system cancer to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Digestive system cancer are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Digestive system cancer in any region:
