Statistics by Country for Pulmonary embolism


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Pulmonary embolism: The word 'prevalence' of Pulmonary embolism usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Pulmonary embolism at any given time (i.e. people with Pulmonary embolism). The term 'incidence' of Pulmonary embolism means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Pulmonary embolism diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Pulmonary embolism). 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 Pulmonary embolism: approximately 650,000 cases annually in the USA
Incidence Rate for Pulmonary embolism: approx 1 in 418 or 0.24% or 650,000 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Pulmonary embolism to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Pulmonary embolism to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Pulmonary embolism are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Pulmonary embolism in any region:
