Statistics by Country for Firearm Injury


advertisement

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

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

Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Firearm Injury to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Firearm Injury to the populations of various countries and regions.
