Statistics by Country for Microcephaly


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Microcephaly: The word 'prevalence' of Microcephaly usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Microcephaly at any given time (i.e. people with Microcephaly). The term 'incidence' of Microcephaly means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Microcephaly diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Microcephaly). 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 Microcephaly: rare
Incidence (annual) of Microcephaly: 1.02 per 10,000 births in the UK 2002 for microcephaly (University of Ulster, 2003)
Incidence Rate for Microcephaly: approx 1 in 9,803 or 0.01% or 27,743 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Microcephaly to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Microcephaly to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Microcephaly are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Microcephaly in any region:
