Statistics by Country for Infertility


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Infertility: The word 'prevalence' of Infertility usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Infertility at any given time (i.e. people with Infertility). The term 'incidence' of Infertility means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Infertility diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Infertility). 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 Infertility: 6.1 million people in 1997 (NWHIC); 5.3 million Americans or 9% of reproductive age (NWHIC/American Society for Reproductive Medicine)
Prevalance Rate for Infertility: approx 1 in 44 or 2.24% or 6.1 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Infertility to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Infertility to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Infertility are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Infertility in any region:
