U.S. Stroke statistics (CDC)
- Every 40 seconds, someone in the United States has a stroke.
- Every 3.5 minutes, someone dies of stroke.
- Each year, more than 795,000 people in the United States have a stroke. About 610,000 of these are first or new strokes. About 87% of all strokes are ischemic strokes, in which blood flow to the brain is blocked.
- Stroke is a leading cause of serious long-term disability. Stroke reduces mobility in more than half of stroke survivors age 65 and older.
It is also important to know your risk. To that end, we encourage you to take the stroke risk test from the UCLA Health so you can take steps to avoid this life altering disease.
