Circumcision Statistics

This index page provides available incidence of male circumcision statistics for the English-speaking nations. Non-English speaking nations usually do not practice non-religious non-therapeutic circumcision of children so the rates for those nations approach zero.

Statistics of this nature are collected in various ways and at different times, and sometimes not at all. The data are not uniform and so may not be not directly comparable. The incidence of male circumcision (genital cutting) operations generally is in decline in all English-speaking nations.
