Infectious Disease Mortality in U.S. 1900-1996
Go to Surveillance Resources Links

Data and reports, a complete list of NCID surveillance systems, and info about the Office of Surveillance Resources.

This graph illustrates the trends in infectious disease mortality in the United States from 1900 to 1996. With exception of the influenza pandemic of 1918, death rates due to infectious diseases decreased until around 1980, at which time several factors (including HIV-related mortality and antibiotic resistance) caused these rates to rise. This increasing trend in infectious disease mortality continued throughout the 1980s and 1990s.
