Statistics by Country for Migraine


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Migraine: The word 'prevalence' of Migraine usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Migraine at any given time (i.e. people with Migraine). The term 'incidence' of Migraine means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Migraine diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Migraine). 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 Migraine: 28 million Americans (NINDS)
Prevalance Rate for Migraine: approx 1 in 9 or 10.29% or 28 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Migraine to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Migraine to the populations of various countries and regions.
