Statistics by Country for Nosocomial infections

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Nosocomial infections: The word 'prevalence' of Nosocomial infections usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Nosocomial infections at any given time (i.e. people with Nosocomial infections). The term 'incidence' of Nosocomial infections means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Nosocomial infections diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Nosocomial infections). 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 Nosocomial infections: estimated 2 million cases annually or about 10% of American hospital patients (CDC/NNIS 1992)
Incidence Rate for Nosocomial infections: approx 1 in 136 or 0.74% or 2 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Nosocomial infections to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Nosocomial infections to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Nosocomial infections are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Nosocomial infections in any region:
