Statistics by Country for Necrotizing fasciitis

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Necrotizing fasciitis: The word 'prevalence' of Necrotizing fasciitis usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Necrotizing fasciitis at any given time (i.e. people with Necrotizing fasciitis). The term 'incidence' of Necrotizing fasciitis means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Necrotizing fasciitis diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Necrotizing fasciitis). 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.

Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Necrotizing fasciitis to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Necrotizing fasciitis to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Necrotizing fasciitis are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Necrotizing fasciitis in any region:
