From: Heterogeneity in regional notification patterns and its impact on aggregate national case notification data: the example of measles in Italy

Figure 3

Relationship between notified measles deaths and notified cases. Relationship between notified measles deaths and notified cases (unadjusted) for the Italian regions for the periods 1958–1967 (solid markers) and 1968–1977 (open markers) (only selected regions are labelled, with dotted lines joining corresponding data points for earlier and later periods). These are compared with the approximate range in the same relationship for England & Wales for the late 1940's and early 1950's (upper dashed line) and for the late 1950's to early 1960's (lower dashed line). Also shown (solid line) is an example of this relationship from a recent outbreak in a developing country (Peru) [16]
