Statistics by Country for Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease: 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 Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease 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 Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease 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 Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease: The word 'prevalence' of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease at any given time (i.e. people with Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease). The term 'incidence' of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease). 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 Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease: 1-per-million
Incidence Rate for Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease: approx 1 in 1,000,000 or 0.00% or 271 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease in any region:
