Prevalence and Incidence of Brucellosis

Brucellosis: Rare Disease

Brucellosis is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Brucellosis, or a subtype of Brucellosis, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.

Ophanet, who are a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when if affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Brucellosis as a "rare disease". More information about Brucellosis is available from Orphanet

Incidence (annual) of Brucellosis:

82 annual cases notified in USA 1999 (MMWR 1999) ... see also overview of Brucellosis.

Incidence Rate:

approx 1 in 3,317,073 or 0.00% or 82 people in USA [Source statistic for calcuation: "82 annual cases notified in USA 1999 (MMWR 1999)" -- see also general information about data sources]

Incidence extrapolations for USA for Brucellosis:

82 per year, 6 per month, 1 per week, 0 per day, 0 per hour, 0 per minute, 0 per second. [Source statistic for calculation: "82 annual cases notified in USA 1999 (MMWR 1999)" -- see also general information about data sources]

Prevalance of Brucellosis:

Brucellosis is not very common in the United States, where100 to 200 cases occur each year. But brucellosis can be very common in countries where animal disease control programs have not reduced the amount of disease among animals. (Source: excerpt from Brucellosis General: DBMD) ... In the United States, < 0.5 cases per 100,000 population. Most cases are reported from California, Florida, Texas, and Virginia.> (Source: excerpt from Brucellosis: DBMD)

Incidence statistics for Brucellosis:

The following statistics relate to the incidence of Brucellosis:

  • 0.2 new cases of brucellosis per 100,000 population was notified in Australia 2002 (Yohannes K, Roche P, Blumer C et al. 2004, Australia’s Health 2004, AIHW)
  • 40 new cases of brucellosis was notified in Australia 2002 (Yohannes K, Roche P, Blumer C et al. 2004, Australia’s Health 2004, AIHW)

    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

    The term 'prevalence' of Brucellosis usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Brucellosis at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Brucellosis refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Brucellosis diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived 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.
