Statistics by Country for Invasive group A Streptococcal disease
About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Invasive group A Streptococcal disease:
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 Invasive group A Streptococcal disease 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 Invasive group A Streptococcal disease 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 Invasive group A Streptococcal disease in that region.
About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Invasive group A Streptococcal disease: The word 'prevalence' of Invasive group A Streptococcal disease usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Invasive group A Streptococcal disease at any given time (i.e. people with Invasive group A Streptococcal disease). The term 'incidence' of Invasive group A Streptococcal disease means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Invasive group A Streptococcal disease diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Invasive group A Streptococcal disease). 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 Invasive group A Streptococcal disease: 2,382 annual cases notified in USA 1999 (MMWR 1999); 1.95 per 100,000 in Canada 20001
Incidence Rate for Invasive group A Streptococcal disease: approx 1 in 114,189 or 0.00% or 2,382 people in USA [about data]
