Statistics by Country for Chickenpox


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Chickenpox: The word 'prevalence' of Chickenpox usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Chickenpox at any given time (i.e. people with Chickenpox). The term 'incidence' of Chickenpox means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Chickenpox diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Chickenpox). 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 Chickenpox: 120,624 annually (1995); 46,016 annual cases notified in USA 1999 (MMWR 1999); 199.14 per 100,000 in Canada 20001
Incidence Rate for Chickenpox: approx 1 in 2,254 or 0.04% or 120,624 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Chickenpox to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Chickenpox to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Chickenpox are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Chickenpox in any region:
