that peak incidence occurred in several slate- in 1962
and 1963. in one talte in 1961. and in another -ingle
state in 1965. It is of interest to nole that Ne\ada is the
only state in the Mountain Region with a higher rate in
1967 than in 1966. In none of the t-rates in any of the
three regions however. do the rates for the current opi
demiologic year approach the rate- of their previous
epidemic years, although an epidemic t ear might ha\e
been expected to occur in 1967 in several of these -tates.
