Statistics by Country for Flu


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Flu: The word 'prevalence' of Flu usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Flu at any given time (i.e. people with Flu). The term 'incidence' of Flu means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Flu diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Flu). 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 Flu: 36 per 100 (NHIS96); 35 million annually up to 50 million annually (NIAID/CDC); 10-20% yearly (NIAID)
Incidence Rate for Flu: approx 1 in 3 or 36.00% or 97.9 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Flu to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Flu to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Flu are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Flu in any region:
