Statistics by Country for Headache

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

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