    • Alternative Title:
      Concepts of excess mortality
    • Description:
      "During the past influenza season, pertinent summaries and epidemiological data were published regularly in the C. D. C. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports. It was felt that the currentness and expanded distribution of information achieved in this manner outweighed the possibly more detailed coverage but retrospective character of standard Influenza Surveillance Summaries. The present report includes: 1) a review of the 1964-65 influenza experience in the United States; 2) an international summary; 3) laboratory discussion; and 4) a collection of pertinent special reports. Interpretations and analysis in the present report are based on data received from official health and research agencies in States and Cities of the U.S. and material, largely that published by the World Health Organization and its sister organizations, dealing with international influenza surveillance. Where direct quotations or Daraphrased reports have been printed, full credits are given; otherwise, data have been assimilated into discussion of broader topics without specific references." - p. [1]

      June 7, 1965.

      Produced by the Communicable Disease Center, Epidemiology Branch, Statistics Section, Surveillance Section, Influenza Surveillance Unit; and Respirovirus Unit, Laboratory Branch.

      "New Name - The reader's attention is directed to an intended expansion of content in future Influenza Surveillance Summaries suggested by the more inclusive title first being published in this issue. As the epidemiology of multitudinous respiratory viruses becomes better documented, there is growing importance in fitting them into meaningful patterns for investigation and control. While these summaries cannot presume a major role in this regard, there will undoubtedly be times and reasons for comparative discussions and specific reports of general interest to our readers."

      Last page consists of a listing by state of state epidemiologists.

      "Summarized in this report is information received from State Health Departments, university investigators, virology laboratories and other pertinent sources, domestic and foreign. Much of the information is preliminary. It is intended primarily for the use of those with responsibility for disease control activities. Anyone desiring to quote this report should contact the original investigator for confirmation and interpretation." - preface
