CDDS Data Update: April 2006, Quarterly Report

(click on graph to make bigger)

This is a graph of the change between quarters of the CDDS data. This graph has been updated with the most recent quarter (March, 2006).

This technique would be a form incidence calculation (were it not flawed). In any case, the so-called incidence based on the CDDS data, is rising, compared to last quarter.
