Statistics by Country for Food poisoning

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Food poisoning: The word 'prevalence' of Food poisoning usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Food poisoning at any given time (i.e. people with Food poisoning). The term 'incidence' of Food poisoning means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Food poisoning diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Food poisoning). 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 Food poisoning: about 76 million cases annually in USA (NIDDK)
Incidence Rate for Food poisoning: approx 1 in 3 or 27.94% or 76 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Food poisoning to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Food poisoning to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Food poisoning are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Food poisoning in any region:
