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