Statistics by Country for Chancroid

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Chancroid: The word 'prevalence' of Chancroid usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Chancroid at any given time (i.e. people with Chancroid). The term 'incidence' of Chancroid means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Chancroid diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Chancroid). 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 Rate for Chancroid: approx 1 in 1,902,100 or 0.00% or 143 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Chancroid to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Chancroid to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Chancroid are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Chancroid in any region:
