Statistics by Country for Primary biliary cirrhosis

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Primary biliary cirrhosis: 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 Primary biliary cirrhosis 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 Primary biliary cirrhosis 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 Primary biliary cirrhosis in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Primary biliary cirrhosis: The word 'prevalence' of Primary biliary cirrhosis usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Primary biliary cirrhosis at any given time (i.e. people with Primary biliary cirrhosis). The term 'incidence' of Primary biliary cirrhosis means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Primary biliary cirrhosis diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Primary biliary cirrhosis). 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 Prevalence Rate of Primary biliary cirrhosis to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Primary biliary cirrhosis to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Primary biliary cirrhosis are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Primary biliary cirrhosis in any region:
