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

Incidence (annual) of Japanese encephalitis:

1 case annually in USA (DVBID) ... see also overview of Japanese encephalitis.

Incidence Rate:

approx 1 in 272,000,000 or 0.00% or 1 people in USA [Source statistic for calcuation: "1 case annually in USA (DVBID)" -- see also general information about data sources]

Incidence extrapolations for USA for Japanese encephalitis:

1 per year, 0 per month, 0 per week, 0 per day, 0 per hour, 0 per minute, 0 per second. [Source statistic for calculation: "1 case annually in USA (DVBID)" -- see also general information about data sources]

Prevalance of Japanese encephalitis:

Fewer than 1 case/year is reported in U.S. civilians and military personnel traveling to and living in Asia. Rare outbreaks in U.S. territories in Western Pacific have occurred. (Source: excerpt from Questions and Answers About Japanese Encephalitis: DVBID)

Worldwide prevalence of Japanese encephalitis:

Japanese encephalitis is the leading cause of viral encephalitis in Asia with 30-50,000 cases reported annually. (Source: excerpt from Questions and Answers About Japanese Encephalitis: DVBID)

    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

    The term 'prevalence' of Japanese encephalitis usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Japanese encephalitis at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Japanese encephalitis refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Japanese encephalitis 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.
