Statistics by Country for Hepatitis B


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Hepatitis B: The word 'prevalence' of Hepatitis B usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Hepatitis B at any given time (i.e. people with Hepatitis B). The term 'incidence' of Hepatitis B means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Hepatitis B diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Hepatitis B). 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 Hepatitis B: estimated 1.5 million HBV carriers in the U.S. (NWHIC); 417,000 people currently infected (CDC 2001)
Prevalance Rate for Hepatitis B: approx 1 in 181 or 0.55% or 1.5 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Hepatitis B to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Hepatitis B to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Hepatitis B are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Hepatitis B in any region:
