Background & Aims Although the incidence of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) varies with age, few studies have examined variations between the sexes. We therefore used population data from established cohorts to analyze sex differences in IBD incidence according to age at diagnosis. Methods We identified population-based cohorts of patients with IBD for which incidence and age data were available (17 distinct cohorts from 16 regions of Europe, North America, Australia, and New Zealand). We col...

Summary Background Inflammatory bowel disease is a global disease in the 21st century. We aimed to assess the changing incidence and prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease around the world. Methods We searched MEDLINE and Embase up to and including Dec 31, 2016, to identify observational, population-based studies reporting the incidence or prevalence of Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis from 1990 or later. A study was regarded as population-based if it involved all residents within a speci...

In spatial epidemiology, detecting areas with high ratio of disease is important as it may lead to identifying risk factors associated with disease. This in turn may lead to further epidemiological investigations into the nature of disease. Disease mapping studies have been widely performed with considering only one disease in the estimated models. Simultaneous modelling of different diseases can also be a valuable tool both from the epidemiological and also from the statistical point of view. I...

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) – Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) – significantly impact quality of life and account for substantial costs to the health care system and society.

In this article, generalized additive mixed models are constructed for the analysis of geographical and temporal variability of cancer ratios. In this class of models, spatially correlated random effects and temporal components are adopted. Spatio-temporal models that use intrinsic conditionally autoregressive smoothing across the spatial dimension and B-spline smoothing over the temporal dimension are considered. We study the patterns of incidence ratios over time and identify areas with consis...

The authors’ objective in this study was to determine geographic variations in the incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), specifically Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, in the Canadian province of Manitoba and its association with the sociodemographic, geographic, and disease-related characteristics of the study population. Using the University of Manitoba IBD Epidemiology Database, the authors applied spatial and ecologic techniques to visualize, explore, and model the incidence o...
