Incidence in migrants

What is the incidence of bipolar disorder in migrants? The incidence of bipolar disorder refers to how many new cases there are per population in a specified time period. It is different from prevalence, which refers to how many existing cases there are at a particular point in time. Differences in the incidence of a disorder can provide clues to its possible causes. The term “migrant” usually refers to first generation migrants – people with a foreign birth place, however some studies also include locally born offspring, or second generation migrants in their analyses. What is the evidence for incidence…

Prevalence and incidence

Worldwide incidence

What is incidence? Incidence refers to how many new cases of bipolar disorder there are in a population in a specified time period. It is different from prevalence, which refers to how many existing cases there are at a particular point in time, or over a lifetime. Incidence is usually reported as the number of new cases per 100,000 people per year. What is the evidence on the incidence of bipolar disorder? Moderate quality evidence suggests an incidence rate of 6.1 per 100,000 person years. Rates were lowest in Wales (1.4) and highest in Sweden (28.5). Rates were higher in…
