Statistics by Country for Hypertension


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Hypertension: The word 'prevalence' of Hypertension usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Hypertension at any given time (i.e. people with Hypertension). The term 'incidence' of Hypertension means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Hypertension diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Hypertension). 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 Hypertension: 50 million Americans (NHLBI); 217 per 1000 (NHIS95)
Prevalance Rate for Hypertension: approx 1 in 5 or 18.38% or 50 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Hypertension to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Hypertension to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Hypertension are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Hypertension in any region:
