FIGURE 1-9

Monthly all-cause deaths in New York City by age. Classic Serfling model estimates of baseline mortality and 95 percent confidence limits were calculated for under-45 [B] and 45-and-over [A] all-cause deaths. The seasonal pattern indicates that the 1917–1918 influenza season (arrowheads) showed two periods with distinct age-specific peaks. (Figure modified from Olson et al., 2004.)
