Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to Countries and Regions:

WARNING! EXTRAPOLATION ONLY! NOT BASED ON COUNTRY-SPECIFIC DATA SOURCES. The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to the populations of various countries and regions. These prevalence extrapolations for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis are only estimates, based on applying the prevalence rates from the US (or a similar country) to the population of other countries, and therefore may have very limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in any region:

About extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis:

WARNING! EXTRAPOLATED STATISTICS ONLY! Not based on data sources from individual countries. 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 Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis are typically based on US, UK, Canadian or Australian prevalence or incidence statistics, which are then extrapolated using only the population of the other country. 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 Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis statistics below refer to. The extrapolation does not use data sources or statistics about any country other than its population. 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 Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in that region. These statistics are presented only in the hope that they may be interesting to some people.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis:

The word 'prevalence' of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis at any given time (i.e. people with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). The term 'incidence' of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). 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.
