Statistics by Country for Group B Streptococcal Infections

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Group B Streptococcal Infections: 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 Group B Streptococcal Infections 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 Group B Streptococcal Infections 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 Group B Streptococcal Infections in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Group B Streptococcal Infections: The word 'prevalence' of Group B Streptococcal Infections usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Group B Streptococcal Infections at any given time (i.e. people with Group B Streptococcal Infections). The term 'incidence' of Group B Streptococcal Infections means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Group B Streptococcal Infections diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Group B Streptococcal Infections). 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 Rate for Group B Streptococcal Infections: approx 1 in 14,492 or 0.01% or 18,767 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Group B Streptococcal Infections to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Group B Streptococcal Infections to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Group B Streptococcal Infections are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Group B Streptococcal Infections in any region:
