Statistics by Country for Osteogenesis imperfecta


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Osteogenesis imperfecta: The word 'prevalence' of Osteogenesis imperfecta usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Osteogenesis imperfecta at any given time (i.e. people with Osteogenesis imperfecta). The term 'incidence' of Osteogenesis imperfecta means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Osteogenesis imperfecta diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Osteogenesis imperfecta). 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 Osteogenesis imperfecta: about 1 in 10,0001.
Incidence Rate for Osteogenesis imperfecta: approx 1 in 10,000 or 0.01% or 27,200 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Osteogenesis imperfecta to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Osteogenesis imperfecta to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Osteogenesis imperfecta are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Osteogenesis imperfecta in any region:
