Statistics by Country for Sleep apnea


advertisement

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Sleep apnea: 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 Sleep apnea 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 Sleep apnea 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 Sleep apnea in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Sleep apnea: The word 'prevalence' of Sleep apnea usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Sleep apnea at any given time (i.e. people with Sleep apnea). The term 'incidence' of Sleep apnea means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Sleep apnea diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Sleep apnea). 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 Sleep apnea: estimated 18 million Americans (NHLBI)
Prevalance Rate for Sleep apnea: approx 1 in 15 or 6.62% or 18 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Sleep apnea to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Sleep apnea to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Sleep apnea are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Sleep apnea in any region:
