    • Description:
      "Since ail reports indicate that influenza is no longer prevalent the publication of numbers of deaths from influenza and pneumonia in 58 cities is being temporarily discontinued. Late in the year when the disease is apt to reappear publication of these data will be resumed, although collection and tabulation will be continued throughout all months of the year. The data collected since the beginning of 1952 have been summarized and Mortality rates calculated on an annual basis. The figures shown in the table of page 4 are average weekly rates for four 4-week periods. For comparison, data for 1951 and 1950 are included. The rates in one geographical area should not be compared with those of another since no correction has been made for residence. Changes in rates from one 4-week period to another in the same area may be indicative of the presence or absence of influenza. It will be noted in the table that there was a very slight increase in Mortality in some areas during March of 1952, namely, in the New England and East South Central States. In 1951 influenza and pneumonia Mortality rates rose much higher in the New England, Middle Atlantic, and Pacific States, and in 1950 the Mountain States showed the greatest amount of Increase. Excess Mortality from all causes probably is a better indicator of influenza than Mortality from influenza and pneumonia alone. However, such data have not been included in the present study." - p. 1
