Statistics by Country for Giardia


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Giardia: The word 'prevalence' of Giardia usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Giardia at any given time (i.e. people with Giardia). The term 'incidence' of Giardia means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Giardia diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Giardia). 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 Giardia: 16.29 per 100,000 in Canada 20001
Incidence Rate for Giardia: approx 1 in 6,138 or 0.02% or 44,308 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Giardia to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Giardia to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Giardia are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Giardia in any region:
