Statistics by Country for Cerebral Palsy

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Cerebral Palsy: The word 'prevalence' of Cerebral Palsy usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Cerebral Palsy at any given time (i.e. people with Cerebral Palsy). The term 'incidence' of Cerebral Palsy means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Cerebral Palsy diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Cerebral Palsy). 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 Cerebral Palsy: 2 to 2.5 per 1,000 births (FMC)
Incidence Rate for Cerebral Palsy: approx 1 in 500 or 0.20% or 544,000 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Cerebral Palsy to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Cerebral Palsy to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Cerebral Palsy are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Cerebral Palsy in any region:
