The population-based incidence of genital warts was estimated at 106 cases per 100,000 population in Rochester, Minnesota (for 1975-1978) [20] and at 160 cases per 100,000 population in Manitoba, Canada (for 1992), [21] with the highest incidence rate in residents aged 20-24 years.

Figures from 5 Blue Cross/Blue Shield Health Plans projected an incidence of 105 cases per 100,000 population (for 2004). [22] They estimated 340,000 cases nationwide in 2004, with an economic burden of more than $220 million. [22]
