Statistics by Country for Norwalk-like viruses


advertisement

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Norwalk-like viruses: 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 Norwalk-like viruses 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 Norwalk-like viruses 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 Norwalk-like viruses in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Norwalk-like viruses: The word 'prevalence' of Norwalk-like viruses usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Norwalk-like viruses at any given time (i.e. people with Norwalk-like viruses). The term 'incidence' of Norwalk-like viruses means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Norwalk-like viruses diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Norwalk-like viruses). 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 Norwalk-like viruses: estimated 181,000 cases annually in USA (CDC-OC)
Incidence Rate for Norwalk-like viruses: approx 1 in 1,502 or 0.07% or 181,000 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Norwalk-like viruses to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Norwalk-like viruses to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Norwalk-like viruses are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Norwalk-like viruses in any region:
