How common is PTSD?
It is difficult to calculate where and who will suffer from PTSD. There are many methods to assess and multiple demographics in the populace to consider. One common thread for PTSD is the occurrence of a traumatic event. However, not everyone who has experienced a traumatic event will develop PTSD. Other factors involving an individuals predisposition prior to and after the event seem to be of importance to the disorder development.
