Statistics by Country for Whiplash


advertisement

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

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