Statistics by Country for Thyroid disorders


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Thyroid disorders: The word 'prevalence' of Thyroid disorders usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Thyroid disorders at any given time (i.e. people with Thyroid disorders). The term 'incidence' of Thyroid disorders means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Thyroid disorders diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Thyroid disorders). 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 Thyroid disorders: 20 million Americans (NWHIC)
Prevalance Rate for Thyroid disorders: approx 1 in 13 or 7.35% or 20 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Thyroid disorders to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Thyroid disorders to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Thyroid disorders are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Thyroid disorders in any region:
