Statistics by Country for Heart disease

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

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



Prevalance of Heart disease: 22 million adults in the US 2000 (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
Prevalance Rate for Heart disease: approx 1 in 12 or 8.09% or 22 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Heart disease to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Heart disease to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Heart disease are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Heart disease in any region:
