Statistics by Country for Kidney disease

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Kidney disease: The word 'prevalence' of Kidney disease usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Kidney disease at any given time (i.e. people with Kidney disease). The term 'incidence' of Kidney disease means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Kidney disease diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Kidney 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 Kidney disease: 7.4 million adults in the USA 1988-94 (American Journal of Kidney Disease)
Prevalance Rate for Kidney disease: approx 1 in 36 or 2.72% or 7.4 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Kidney disease to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Kidney disease to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Kidney disease are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Kidney disease in any region:
