Statistics by Country for Heart failure


advertisement

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

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



Prevalance of Heart failure: 4.8 million (NHLBI); 2 to 3 million Americans (NHLBI)
Prevalance Rate for Heart failure: approx 1 in 56 or 1.76% or 4.8 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Heart failure to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Heart failure to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Heart failure are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Heart failure in any region:
