HIGH PREVALENCE OF PARKINSON'S DISEASE IN CANADA

Parkinsonism Related Disorders [2012] 18 (4) : 327-331 (Allyson Jones C, Wayne Martin WR, Wieler M, King-Jesso P, Voaklander DC.) Complete abstract

The prevalence of Parkinson's Disease in Canada has been found to be one of the highest of any country in the world. The study was carried out in British Columbia, Canada. The prevalence rates amongst men were found to be 396-207 per 100,000 for men, and 259 to 127 per 100,000 for women. Combining the figures for both men and women gives figures of around 317 to 167 per 100,00.

These figures are just below those of the U.S.A., which has one of the highest prevalence rates of any country. The only countries with higher prevalence rates than the U.S.A. and Canada are Albania and Egypt, where the prevalence rates are exceptionally high. The ratio of men to women with Parkinson's Disease in Canada is 1.56. As in most countries in the world, in Canada there are more men than women with Parkinson's Disease. For more concerning prevalence rates go to the Prevalence of Parkinson's Disease. For a printable version of this article click hereFor more news go to Parkinson's Disease News.
