Statistics by Country for Congenital heart defects


advertisement

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Congenital heart defects: 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 Congenital heart defects 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 Congenital heart defects 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 Congenital heart defects in that region.

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



Prevalance of Congenital heart defects: 1 million (NHLBI)
Prevalance Rate for Congenital heart defects: approx 1 in 272 or 0.37% or 1 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Congenital heart defects to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Congenital heart defects to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Congenital heart defects are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Congenital heart defects in any region:
