Statistics by Country for Endometriosis

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Endometriosis: The word 'prevalence' of Endometriosis usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Endometriosis at any given time (i.e. people with Endometriosis). The term 'incidence' of Endometriosis means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Endometriosis diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Endometriosis). 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 Endometriosis: 10 to 20 percent of American women of childbearing age have endometriosis (NIDCD); up to 2 million women in the UK.
Prevalance Rate for Endometriosis: approx 1 in 20 or 5.00% or 13.6 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Endometriosis to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Endometriosis to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Endometriosis are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Endometriosis in any region:
