      ISSUED APRIL 1976

      In the period 1971-1973, 419 cases of leprosy were reported to the Center for Disease Control for the United States and Puerto Rico, for an incidence rate of 0.067 cases per 100,000 population per year. Cases reported from California increased from 39 in 1971 to 68 in 1973, while the cases reported from Florida and New York City decreased. The incidence of leprosy in persons who were born in the United States and have always resided here has been relatively stable since 1969, while the total leprosy incidence rate has risen from 0.056 cases per 100,000 population in 1969 to 0.067 cases per 100,000 in 1971-1973 because of an increase in cases acquired elsewhere. Endemic foci of leprosy continue to be seen in Hawaii, Texas, Louisiana, and California.
