Statistics by Country for Legionnaires' disease

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Legionnaires' 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 Legionnaires' 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 Legionnaires' 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 Legionnaires' disease in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Legionnaires' disease: The word 'prevalence' of Legionnaires' disease usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Legionnaires' disease at any given time (i.e. people with Legionnaires' disease). The term 'incidence' of Legionnaires' disease means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Legionnaires' disease diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Legionnaires' 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 Legionnaires' disease: 1,108 annual cases notified in USA 1999 (MMWR 1999)
Incidence Rate for Legionnaires' disease: approx 1 in 245,487 or 0.00% or 1,107 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Legionnaires' disease to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Legionnaires' disease to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Legionnaires' disease are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Legionnaires' disease in any region:
