WARNING! EXTRAPOLATION ONLY! NOT BASED ON COUNTRY-SPECIFIC DATA SOURCES. The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Ehlers-Danlos syndrome to the populations of various countries and regions.

About extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Ehlers-Danlos syndrome:

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 Ehlers-Danlos syndrome 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 Ehlers-Danlos syndrome 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 Ehlers-Danlos syndrome 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 Ehlers-Danlos syndrome:

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