Gout – Epidemiology – Europe Data

DRG Epidemiology’s coverage of gout comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations in 45 countries worldwide. We report the prevalence of gout 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 and 10 years for the other countries covered in this report.

DRG Epidemiology’s gout forecast will answer the following questions:

  • In developing countries, what impact will economic growth and development have on the number of people living with a diagnosis of gout?
  • How will demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of gout over the forecast period?

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 provided for full transparency into research and methods.

In addition to the total number of cases for each forecast year, DRG Epidemiology provides at least ten years of forecast data for the following gout subpopulations:

  • Diagnosed 12-month prevalent cases
  • Diagnosed 12-month incident cases
  • Acute gout events per year
  • Lifetime DALYs gained

Note: Coverage may vary by country.
