Statistics by Country for Pneumonia

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Pneumonia: The word 'prevalence' of Pneumonia usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Pneumonia at any given time (i.e. people with Pneumonia). The term 'incidence' of Pneumonia means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Pneumonia diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Pneumonia). 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 Pneumonia: 4.8 million annual cases (1996); 1.8 per 100 (NHIS96)
Incidence Rate for Pneumonia: approx 1 in 56 or 1.76% or 4.8 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Pneumonia to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Pneumonia to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Pneumonia are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Pneumonia in any region:
