Statistics by Country for Social phobia


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Social phobia: The word 'prevalence' of Social phobia usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Social phobia at any given time (i.e. people with Social phobia). The term 'incidence' of Social phobia means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Social phobia diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Social phobia). 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 Social phobia: 5.3 million adult Americans (NIMH); 3.7% adults (NIMH); 2.0% adults (USSG)
Prevalance Rate for Social phobia: approx 1 in 51 or 1.95% or 5.3 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Social phobia to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Social phobia to the populations of various countries and regions.
