Statistics by Country for Preeclampsia


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Preeclampsia: The word 'prevalence' of Preeclampsia usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Preeclampsia at any given time (i.e. people with Preeclampsia). The term 'incidence' of Preeclampsia means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Preeclampsia diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Preeclampsia). 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 Preeclampsia: 146,320 cases (1998/NHLBI); about 5% of pregnancies.
Incidence Rate for Preeclampsia: approx 1 in 1,858 or 0.05% or 146,320 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Preeclampsia to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Preeclampsia to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Preeclampsia are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Preeclampsia in any region:
