i'm confused about the stats on this page:

first, according to the stats, the rate for the USA is 0.73529%, not 7.35%, as stated on the page.

even stranger, the prevalence for 114 of 119 countries in the list is the same: 0.73529%

attached is an excel spreadsheet showing my percentage calculations.

i'm guessing there's something wrong with my math, or my interpretation of the stats.
