Compared with 1992, the number of reported pertussis cases increased in 35 states, especially those in the New England, middle-Atlantic, North Central, and Mountain regions (Figure 2). During 1993, large outbreaks have occurred in Chicago and Cincinnati. This report summarizes epidemiologic characteristics of pertussis cases reported through December 4, 1993.
