I now have most of the figures and am just awaiting a few more
assuming that you are after national statistics for the U.S.

I look forward to your confirmation that these figures are for the US
and are "reported cases" rather than "substanciated cases" as there is
quite a difference in the two figures.

I will post the answer over the weekend pending your reply.

This is for United States only.  I would like both sets of statisics
(cases reported and cases verified) If this is actually two questions
I will pay for the second. Thank you! Carol

Hello, the difficulty with obtaining statistics of this type was in
the fact that the tables are blocked together in clumps of years.
Luckily i was able to find the first set all together in a nice neat
little package. The others although from the same site were a little
more difficult to find.

Since National Statistics take a while to sort out i have done 10
years from 1999 –2000.

YEARS 1990 – 1997

Year	Reported	Confirmed 
1990	2,567,555	811,552
1991	2,695,308	862,639
1992	2,856,973	992,617
1993	2,936,554	1,018,692
1994	2,935,470	1,011,628
1995	2,959,237	1,000,502
1996	3,006,752	969,018
1997	2,980,000	984,327

YEAR 1998

1998  		            2,800,000				          903,000	

YEAR 1999

1999			3,244,000				1,070,000

YEAR 2000

2000			3,000,000				879, 000

YEAR 2001							

 or HTML (which includes my search keys)

(Page 8)

2001 			3,000,000                903,000

I hope this helps, sorry for the delay i wanted to make sure that the
figures were as accurate as possible.  2002 figures are not available
yet of course.
