Statistics by Country for Mesothelioma


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Mesothelioma: The word 'prevalence' of Mesothelioma usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Mesothelioma at any given time (i.e. people with Mesothelioma). The term 'incidence' of Mesothelioma means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Mesothelioma diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Mesothelioma). 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 Mesothelioma: 563 new cases in the UK 2002(UK Government Statistics)
Incidence Rate for Mesothelioma: approx 1 in 106,571 or 0.00% or 2,552 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Mesothelioma to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Mesothelioma to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Mesothelioma are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Mesothelioma in any region:
