Statistics by Country for Meningitis


advertisement

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

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



Incidence (annual) of Meningitis: approximately 25,000 cases of bacterial meningitis annually in USA; 206 annual cases in Victoria 1996 (DHS-VIC)
Incidence Rate for Meningitis: approx 1 in 10,879 or 0.01% or 25,000 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Meningitis to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Meningitis to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Meningitis are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Meningitis in any region:
