Statistics by Country for Borderline Personality Disorder


advertisement

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Borderline Personality Disorder: 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 Borderline Personality Disorder 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 Borderline Personality Disorder 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 Borderline Personality Disorder in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Borderline Personality Disorder: The word 'prevalence' of Borderline Personality Disorder usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Borderline Personality Disorder at any given time (i.e. people with Borderline Personality Disorder). The term 'incidence' of Borderline Personality Disorder means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Borderline Personality Disorder diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Borderline Personality Disorder). 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.
