  • View 10-year forecasts of total prevalent cases, diarrhea predominant prevalent cases, constipation predominant prevalent cases for all 171 countries, stratified by region and World Bank income status.
  • Aggregate country-level estimates into region-level estimates, according to user preference or as required by regulators for orphan drug designations.
  • Visualize global correlations between disease risk or patient population size and key indicators of market opportunity such as GDP per capita and healthcare spend per capita.
  • Generate and export global heat maps of disease risk or patient population size.

The Extrapolated Worldwide Coverage dashboard is available as an Excel file in the “Downloads” section. It is available for purchase by clients who subscribe to all 45 countries covered by DRG Epidemiology. For subscription and entitlement queries, please contact questions@teamdrg.com.
