I have an hour (so please hurry) and you how it is - when you're looking for something in particular, you can't find it!

I need some statistics on how rampant LD is. Nationwide, state of PA, with kids, that kind of thing.

I've been looking at marylandlyme and CALDA and ILADS and LymePA but just not seeing it! Help!

Top 10 List (2010) for Lyme Disease Reported Cases Nationwide. PA is number one in the USA. (Multiply the numbers by 10 to get the CDC 10-fold number- cases missed).

Pennsylvania- Total Reported Cases- 3,805

(Or... 38,050 using CDC 10-fold criteria)

New Jersey- 3,712
Wisconsin- 3,488
New York- 3,425
Massachusetts - 3,263
Connecticut- 3,068
Minnesota- 1,960
Maryland- 1,617
New Hampshire- 1,339
Virginia- 1,245

Source https://sites.google.com/site/marylandlyme/reported-cases

````````````````````````````````````

Lyme disease reported cases in PA increased from 1993-2008 by 252%.

Source Need tiny URL- working on it.

````````````````````````````````````````````

PA- 2010 reported case figures.

TOTAL 3,805

CONFIRMED 3,298

PROBABLE 507

need tiny URL- working on it

``````````````````````````````````````

My calculation- Using the CDC 10-fold criteria number 38,050 for 2010... (divided by 365 days in a year)

On average, over 100 people per day are contracting Lyme disease in Pennsylvania.

Lyme has been recognized as being endemic to Pennsylvania since the US government first began reporting such statistics, see
http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00015561.htm

It is still one of the top 12 states:
http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/lyme/

and at 3,298 confirmed cases reported, had the highest number of confirmed cases in the US in 2010, see
http://www.cdc.gov/lyme/stats/chartstables/reportedcases_statelocality.html
