Lifestyles & Acne

Does anyone have any stats on the % of populations of each country that are affected by acne? I know most of the population in western countries suffer from it to some degree (most minor) during adolescence, but I've heard (although it could be a myth) that it's rare in some of the East Asian countries for example.

I rarely eat junk food, probably the closest thing to junk that I eat is steak/other red meat cooked in olive oil (but I still get the occasional pimple every week which always scars :().

Do those in other countries lead a more relaxed lifestyle than Westerners, because I find myself stressed on most days due to university and in the summer, work. I suppose I'd like to have a diary of what someone from a low acne nation does on a typical day and compare it with what Westerners do and see where we go wrong.
