Statistics by Country for Acute Appendicitis


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Acute Appendicitis: The word 'prevalence' of Acute Appendicitis usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Acute Appendicitis at any given time (i.e. people with Acute Appendicitis). The term 'incidence' of Acute Appendicitis means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Acute Appendicitis diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Acute Appendicitis). 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 Acute Appendicitis: 25 per 10,000 (age 10-17), 1-2 per per 10,000 (under 4)
Incidence Rate for Acute Appendicitis: approx 1 in 400 or 0.25% or 680,000 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Acute Appendicitis to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Acute Appendicitis to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Acute Appendicitis are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Acute Appendicitis in any region:
