Atrial Fibrillation – Epidemiology – Americas Data

Clarivate Epidemiology’s coverage of atrial fibrillation (AF) comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations in 45 countries worldwide. We report the prevalence of AF for each country, as well as annualized case counts projected to the national population. Most patient populations in the mature pharmaceutical markets are forecast over a period of 20 years; in other countries, forecasts are over 10 years. In addition to forecasting prevalent patient populations, the number of drug-treatment opportunities are also forecast across the major pharmaceutical markets.

Clarivate Epidemiology’s AF forecast will answer the following questions:

  • How will change in the levels of exposure to known risk or protective factors affect the number of people living with AF?
  • Of all people with AF, how many in each country have been formally diagnosed?
  • Of all people diagnosed with AF, how many in the mature pharmaceutical markets are drug-treated?
  • How will demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of AF over the forecast period?

All forecast data are available on the Clarivate 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.

Clarivate Epidemiology provides at least ten years of forecast data for the following AF patient populations:

  • Total AF prevalent cases.
  • Diagnosed AF prevalent cases.
  • Undiagnosed AF prevalent cases.
  • Diagnosed AF prevalent cases by subtype scheme.
  • Diagnosed AF prevalent cases by hypertension status.
  • Diagnosed AF prevalent cases by valvular heart disease status.
  • Diagnosed AF prevalent cases by heart failure status.
  • Diagnosed AF prevalent cases by CHADS2 score scheme.
  • Diagnosed AF drug-treated prevalent cases.
  • Diagnosed AF non-drug-treated prevalent cases.
