Epilepsy by the Numbers

Epilepsy is a serious disorder that is characterized by recurrent and unprovoked seizures, which may vary in type and severity. Epileptic seizures can affect all areas of one’s life. They can impact one’s ability to work and to drive, as a seizure may strike virtually any time. Such a seizure may simply appear as a person staring off into space for a time all the way to violent shaking and loss of alertness.

Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder and can affect people of all ages. According to the Epilepsy Foundation:

  • Approximately 65 million people worldwide and 3 million people in the U.S. suffer from epilepsy.
  • 1 in 26 people in the U.S. will develop epilepsy at some point in their life.
  • There are approximately 150,000 new cases of epilepsy in the U.S. each year.
  • In 6 out of 10 epilepsy cases, the cause is unknown.
  • One-third of people living with epilepsy deal with uncontrollable seizures because they have been unable to find workable treatments.
