The prevalence of Addison's disease in the human population is estimated to be roughly 4-12 persons per 100,000 persons. The incidence of Addison's disease is approximately 0.6 per 100,000 individuals worldwide. Addison's disease can affect any age range. Addison's disease occurs more frequently in females as compared to males with a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

Addison's disease may be more common in areas where systemic fungal infections such as histoplasmosis can cause destruction of the adrenal cortex by disseminated infection or secondary to antifungal medications.
