Statistics by Country for Acromegaly

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Acromegaly: The word 'prevalence' of Acromegaly usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Acromegaly at any given time (i.e. people with Acromegaly). The term 'incidence' of Acromegaly means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Acromegaly diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Acromegaly). 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 Acromegaly: 40-60 per million affected people at any time
Prevalance Rate for Acromegaly: approx 1 in 25,000 or 0.00% or 10,880 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Acromegaly to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Acromegaly to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Acromegaly are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Acromegaly in any region:
