Statistics by Country for Obsessive-compulsive disorder

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Obsessive-compulsive disorder: 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 Obsessive-compulsive disorder 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 Obsessive-compulsive disorder 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 Obsessive-compulsive disorder in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Obsessive-compulsive disorder: The word 'prevalence' of Obsessive-compulsive disorder usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Obsessive-compulsive disorder at any given time (i.e. people with Obsessive-compulsive disorder). The term 'incidence' of Obsessive-compulsive disorder means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Obsessive-compulsive disorder diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Obsessive-compulsive disorder). 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 Obsessive-compulsive disorder: 3.3 million adult Americans (NIMH); 2.3% adults (NIMH); 1 in 50 people (NWHIC); 2.4% adults (USSG)
Prevalance Rate for Obsessive-compulsive disorder: approx 1 in 82 or 1.21% or 3.3 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Obsessive-compulsive disorder to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Obsessive-compulsive disorder to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Obsessive-compulsive disorder are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Obsessive-compulsive disorder in any region:
