Statistics by Country for Gonorrhea

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Gonorrhea: The word 'prevalence' of Gonorrhea usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Gonorrhea at any given time (i.e. people with Gonorrhea). The term 'incidence' of Gonorrhea means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Gonorrhea diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Gonorrhea). 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 Gonorrhea: 800,000 cases (CDC estimate/NIAID)
Incidence Rate for Gonorrhea: approx 1 in 339 or 0.29% or 800,000 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Gonorrhea to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Gonorrhea to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Gonorrhea are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Gonorrhea in any region:
