Statistics by Country for Stroke


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Stroke: The word 'prevalence' of Stroke usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Stroke at any given time (i.e. people with Stroke). The term 'incidence' of Stroke means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Stroke diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Stroke). 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 Stroke: estimated 4.6 million (NHLBI)
Prevalance Rate for Stroke: approx 1 in 59 or 1.69% or 4.6 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Stroke to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Stroke to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Stroke are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Stroke in any region:
