When we are talking about 15% or 16% being rh negative, we are usually referring to the European average.
But how about in other countries?
More than half of the world population lives in Asia where percentages of rh negatives are significantly lower.
Especially in South-East Asia where less than 1% is the norm.
On a continental level, Australia is the highest with almost 20% being rh negative, but since the population number is only around 25 Million, the impact on worldwide percentages is very low.
Here is the updated list of Blood Type Frequencies by Country including the Rh Factor:
Blood Type Frequencies by Country including the Rh Factor
The percentage of rh negatives worldwide is 6%.
This percentage is expected to go down even further.
1) Data missing is primarily from nations in regions where rh negative frequencies run below 6%.
2) Population growth occurs primarily in regions where rh negative percentages are low.
This does not mean that rh negative blood is headed for extinction .
But it does mean that on a worldwide level, rh negative blood is likely to become rarer.
Which means it is going to be increasingly important for rh negative people to be in touch so should there be
a need for blood in an emergency situation, we can have each others’ backs.
