Statistics by Country for Schizophrenia

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Schizophrenia: The word 'prevalence' of Schizophrenia usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Schizophrenia at any given time (i.e. people with Schizophrenia). The term 'incidence' of Schizophrenia means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Schizophrenia diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Schizophrenia). 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.



Prevalance of Schizophrenia: Approximately 2.2 million American adults (NIMH); estimated 1.3% adults (USSG); more than 2 million Americans
Prevalance Rate for Schizophrenia: approx 1 in 123 or 0.81% or 2.2 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Schizophrenia to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Schizophrenia to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Schizophrenia are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Schizophrenia in any region:
