Experts analyzed publications published between 1961 and 2020, with data covering generalized headaches, migraines, and tension headaches. According to the findings, about 52 percent of people suffer from some form of headache every year.
The team reviewed 357 studies, most of the publications in high-income countries. Information from other countries will be required to better understand the situation.
Experts found that the global migraine prevalence rate is 14 percent and tension headaches are 26 percent.
Every day, 15.8% of the world’s population suffers from headaches.
According to Stoffners, the prevalence of different headaches is still high and affects many. The authors believe that better prevention and treatment can reduce the burden.
The researchers also found that all types were more common in women. Six percent of women reported experiencing headaches for at least 15 days a month, compared to 2.9 percent of men.
The incidence of migraine headaches increased during the study period. According to experts, this is probably due to the development of the methodology.
