  • Description:
    Statistics on the incidence of acute conditions and the associated days of restricted activity, bed disability, and time “lost from work and school, by age, sex, calendar quarter, place of residence, and geographic region. Based on data collected in household interviews during the period July 1971-June 1972.

    During JuIy 1971-June 1972, an estimated 447,735,000 acute illnesses or injuries requiring either medical attention or reduced daily activity were experienced by the civilian, noninstitutionalized population of the United States. The incidence of new cases of acute conditions per 100 persons per year was 220.2, which is somewhat larger than the annual incidence rate of 210.1 conditions per 100 persons reported for the previous 12-month period. The increase in the incidence rate was accounted for primarily by a rise in acute respiratory illnesses from 110.3 per 100 persons in July 1970-June 1971 to 120.7 in July 1971-June 1972. A notable increase in the incidence rate of influenza-like illnesses for 39.0 to 47.5 was responsible for the most part for the increased incidence rate of acute respiratory illnesses. This report is one of an annual series of such reports on the incidence of acute illness or injury based on data collected in the Health Interview Survey. The last report, Series 10, No. 82, covered the period July 1970-June 1971; acute illness or injury reports in Series 10 are Numbers 1, 10, 15, 26, 38, 44, 54, 69, and 77. The incidence of acute conditions on a calendar year basis is presented in summary form in the Current Estimates reports Series 10, Numbers 52, 60, 63, 72, 79, and 85 for 1967 through-1972.
