Statistics by Country for Pneumococcal pneumonia

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Pneumococcal pneumonia: The word 'prevalence' of Pneumococcal pneumonia usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Pneumococcal pneumonia at any given time (i.e. people with Pneumococcal pneumonia). The term 'incidence' of Pneumococcal pneumonia means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Pneumococcal pneumonia diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Pneumococcal pneumonia). 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 pneumonia: 500,000 cases annually (NIAID)
Incidence Rate for Pneumococcal pneumonia: approx 1 in 544 or 0.18% or 500,000 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Pneumococcal pneumonia to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Pneumococcal pneumonia to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Pneumococcal pneumonia are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Pneumococcal pneumonia in any region:
