Willkommen! Die LEAD - Website präsentiert Open Research Data und Geschichten über historische Epidemien und Pandemien in der Schweiz.

Mortality and morbidity from Influenza in Swiss cantons, 1953-1958

Description:

For the LEAD Hub, we digitized and analyzed the following historical demographic and epidemiological data for all Swiss cantons the first time: Since the end of the 19th century, the Federal Health Office (Eidgenössisches Gesundheitsamt) published a weekly bulletin. For the period January 1953 to December 1958, we have digitized and transcribed the following monthly series: Monthly deaths from influenza and all causes for all Swiss cantons; Weekly reported new cases of Influenza-like-Illness for all cantons; Yearly population numbers for all cantons (source). There was no change in the obligation to report new influenza cases during the observation period.
