DRG Epidemiology's coverage of chronic low back pain (CLBP) comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations across 45 countries worldwide. We report the prevalence of CLBP for each country, as well as annualized case counts projected to the national population.
Most patient populations are forecast over a period of 20 years for the major mature pharmaceutical markets of the United States, Europe and Japan, and 10 years for the other countries covered in this report.
DRG Epidemiology's CLBP forecast will answer the following questions:
All forecast data are available on the DRG Insights Platform in tabular format, with options to download to MS Excel. All populations are accompanied by a comprehensive description of the methods and data sources used, with hyperlinks to external sources. A summary evidence table generated as part of our systematic review of the epidemiological literature is also provided for full transparency into research and methods.
In addition to the total number of cases for each forecast year, DRG Epidemiology also provides at least ten years of forecast data for the following chronic low back pain subpopulations:
