Statistics by Country for Pubic lice

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Pubic lice: The word 'prevalence' of Pubic lice usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Pubic lice at any given time (i.e. people with Pubic lice). The term 'incidence' of Pubic lice means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Pubic lice diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Pubic lice). 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 Pubic lice: 3 million new cases annually estimated (NIAID)
Incidence Rate for Pubic lice: approx 1 in 90 or 1.10% or 3 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Pubic lice to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Pubic lice to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Pubic lice are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Pubic lice in any region:
