Answer

No accurate prospective data are available regarding the incidence of aplastic anemia in the United States. Findings from several retrospective studies usually overlap those from Europe and suggest that the incidence is 0.6-6.1 cases per million population; this rate is largely based on data from reviews of death registries.
