Statistics by Country for Gestational diabetes

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Gestational diabetes: The word 'prevalence' of Gestational diabetes usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Gestational diabetes at any given time (i.e. people with Gestational diabetes). The term 'incidence' of Gestational diabetes means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Gestational diabetes diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Gestational diabetes). 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 Gestational diabetes: 135,000 pregnant women get the condition every year; 3-5% of pregnant women.
Incidence Rate for Gestational diabetes: approx 1 in 2,014 or 0.05% or 135,000 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Gestational diabetes to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Gestational diabetes to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Gestational diabetes are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Gestational diabetes in any region:
