TLDR
Age, gender and occupation were found to be risk factors for migraine and neither frequency and duration of attacks nor length of time of disease differed with gender, however, expressed intensity of attacks was greater in females.
The prevalence and characteristics of migraine in a population-based cohort
TLDR
The prevalence of migraine was significantly higher in women and not associated with socioeconomic status and the coexistence of migraine with and without aura occurs frequently and has implications for future studies on the genetics of migraine.
Migraine Headache in a Prepaid Health Plan: Ascertainment, Demographics, Physiological, and Behavioral Factors
TLDR
Migraine is a prevalent disorder whose relationship to other conditions remains poorly understood and its role in clinical practice is still poorly understood.

TLDR
It is concluded that after taking sociodemographic factors and case definition into account, estimates of migraine prevalence are remarkably stable among studies.
The Epidemiology of Headache in Germany: A Nationwide Survey of A Representative Sample on The Basis of The Headache Classification of The International Headache Society
TLDR
The findings suggest that the magnitude of the neurological disorders, migraine and tension-type headache, is seriously underestimated and thus constitutes a major contemporary health problem in Germany.
Variation in migraine prevalence by race
TLDR
In the United States, migraine prevalence is highest in Caucasians, followed by African Americans and Asian Americans, and it is suggested that race-related differences in genetic vulnerability to migraine are more likely to predominate as an explanatory factor.
A Canadian population survey on the clinical, epidemiologic and societal impact of migraine and tension-type headache.
TLDR
It is concluded that the current prevalences of migraine and tension-type headache in Canada fall around the mean of previous studies, that the IHS criteria can form a basis for diagnostic classification and that the functional impact of migraine has been seriously underestimated in the past.
