Statistics by Country for Latent tuberculosis

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Latent tuberculosis: The word 'prevalence' of Latent tuberculosis usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Latent tuberculosis at any given time (i.e. people with Latent tuberculosis). The term 'incidence' of Latent tuberculosis means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Latent tuberculosis diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Latent tuberculosis). 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 Latent tuberculosis: estimated 10 to 15 million people in USA (NIAID)
Prevalance Rate for Latent tuberculosis: approx 1 in 27 or 3.68% or 10 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Latent tuberculosis to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Latent tuberculosis to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Latent tuberculosis are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Latent tuberculosis in any region:
