Statistics by Country for Lung conditions

more than 30 million Americans with chronic lung diseases (NWHIC)

Prevalance Rate for Lung conditions:

approx 1 in 9 or 11.03% or 30 million people in USA [about data]

Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Lung conditions 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 Lung conditions to the populations of various countries and regions. These prevalence extrapolations for Lung conditions 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 Lung conditions in any region:

About extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Lung conditions:

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 Lung conditions 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 Lung conditions 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 Lung conditions 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 Lung conditions:

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