About extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Post-traumatic stress disorder:

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 Post-traumatic stress disorder 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 Post-traumatic stress disorder 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 Post-traumatic stress disorder 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 Post-traumatic stress disorder:

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