I was doing some research today, and wondered how many people have Dissociative Identity Disorder.
So far, what I could find, the statistics are saying that:
Approximately 1% of the population is DID.
Some research says up to 3% of the population!
But even at 1% of the population…
With a current world population of 7.4 billion people, that means:
There are approximately 74 million dissociative people.
Yep, at 1% of the population, that is 74,000,000 people who have a dissociative disorder.
7 4 , 0 0 0 , 0 00 people !
74 million people.
74 million dissociative people.
That’s pretty staggering, hey?
I had to post that.
Because I think THAT says a lot.
Oh — and if anyone has a more recent statistic on the percentage of the population, please let me know. I didn’t take a long chunk of time researching it, but 1% is what I found.
I don’t know what else to say about that, except….
Hi, hi, hi, and hi, 74 million times over. 🙂
