Statistics by Country for Hemolytic uremic syndrome

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Hemolytic uremic syndrome: 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 Hemolytic uremic syndrome 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 Hemolytic uremic syndrome 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 Hemolytic uremic syndrome in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Hemolytic uremic syndrome: The word 'prevalence' of Hemolytic uremic syndrome usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Hemolytic uremic syndrome at any given time (i.e. people with Hemolytic uremic syndrome). The term 'incidence' of Hemolytic uremic syndrome means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Hemolytic uremic syndrome diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Hemolytic uremic syndrome). 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 Rate for Hemolytic uremic syndrome: approx 1 in 1,346,534 or 0.00% or 201 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Hemolytic uremic syndrome to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Hemolytic uremic syndrome to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Hemolytic uremic syndrome are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Hemolytic uremic syndrome in any region:
