Statistics by Country for Wrist fracture


advertisement

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Wrist fracture: The word 'prevalence' of Wrist fracture usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Wrist fracture at any given time (i.e. people with Wrist fracture). The term 'incidence' of Wrist fracture means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Wrist fracture diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Wrist fracture). 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 Wrist fracture: at least 250,000 wrist fractures (the number caused by osteoporosis annually in the USA)
Incidence Rate for Wrist fracture: approx 1 in 1,088 or 0.09% or 250,000 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Wrist fracture to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Wrist fracture to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Wrist fracture are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Wrist fracture in any region:
