My First Epilepsy Poll

Epilepsy is more common than many people think. According to the Epilepsy Foundation:

  • Epilepsy and seizures affect nearly 3 million Americans of all ages.
  • Approximately 200,000 new cases of seizures and epilepsy occur each year.
  • Ten percent of the American population will experience a seizure in their lifetime.
  • Incidence is highest under the age of 2 and over 65.
  • Incidence is greater in African American and socially disadvantaged populations.
  • Trends show decreased incidence in children; increased incidence in the elderly.
  • In 70 percent of new cases, no cause is apparent.
