Statistics by Country for Whooping Cough

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Whooping Cough: The word 'prevalence' of Whooping Cough usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Whooping Cough at any given time (i.e. people with Whooping Cough). The term 'incidence' of Whooping Cough means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Whooping Cough diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Whooping Cough). 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 Whooping Cough: 7,405 cases annually in USA (1998); under-diagnosis of cases in adults means the real prevalence may be much higher
Incidence Rate for Whooping Cough: approx 1 in 36,731 or 0.00% or 7,405 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Whooping Cough to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Whooping Cough to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Whooping Cough are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Whooping Cough in any region:
