DRG Epidemiology's coverage of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations in our Europe region (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Sweden,and Switzerland). We report the total 12-month prevalence of OCD for each country, as well as annualized case counts projected to the national population.

All patient populations are forecast over a period of 20 years for the countries we cover in this report.

DRG Epidemiology's OCD forecast will answer the following question:

  • How will demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of OCD 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 also provided for full transparency into research and methods.

In addition to the number of total 12-month prevalent cases for each forecast year, DRG Epidemiology also provides forecast data for the following OCD subpopulations:

  • 12-month prevalent cases by severity.

Note: Coverage may vary by country.
