From the statistics I have read, the worldwide rates are that it occurs in 10% of all pregnancies. When its broken down by country the numbers stay about the same between 5-12% of all pregnancies.

It also varies on the year and where they get their numbers as the US numbers fluctuate between 5%, 8%, and 10% depending on the source.

Many countries don't have solid numbers as well because the reporting just doesn't happen.

The last time I cheked for numbers, the CDC had released pregnancy states for many countries (this was about 1-2 years ago) online.
