Statistics by Country for Huntington's Disease

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Huntington's 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 Huntington's 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 Huntington's 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 Huntington's Disease in that region.

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

Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Huntington's Disease to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Huntington's Disease to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Huntington's Disease are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Huntington's Disease in any region:
