Statistics by Country for Pneumococcal meningitis

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Pneumococcal 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 Pneumococcal 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 Pneumococcal 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 Pneumococcal meningitis in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Pneumococcal meningitis: The word 'prevalence' of Pneumococcal meningitis usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Pneumococcal meningitis at any given time (i.e. people with Pneumococcal meningitis). The term 'incidence' of Pneumococcal meningitis means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Pneumococcal meningitis diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Pneumococcal 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 Pneumococcal meningitis: about 1 to 2 per 100,000 in the USA
Incidence Rate for Pneumococcal meningitis: approx 1 in 100,000 or 0.00% or 2,720 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Pneumococcal meningitis to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Pneumococcal meningitis to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Pneumococcal meningitis are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Pneumococcal meningitis in any region:
