Statistics by Country for Liver conditions

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Liver conditions: The word 'prevalence' of Liver conditions usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Liver conditions at any given time (i.e. people with Liver conditions). The term 'incidence' of Liver conditions means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Liver conditions diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Liver conditions). 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 Liver conditions: 400,000 people in the USA 1976-80 for "chronic liver disease and cirrhosis" (Digestive diseases in the United States: Epidemiology and Impact NIH Publication No. 94-1447, NIDDK, 1994)
Prevalance Rate for Liver conditions: approx 1 in 679 or 0.15% or 400,000 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Liver conditions to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Liver conditions to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Liver conditions are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Liver conditions in any region:
