Dengue incidence rates by age and gender in northern Queensland, Australia, 1993-2012

Viewed: 2312

Dengue has been a major public health concern in Australia since it re-emerged in Queensland in 1992–1993. We explored spatio-temporal characteristics of locally-acquired dengue cases in northern tropical Queensland, Australia during the period 1993–2012.

Locally-acquired notified cases of dengue were collected for northern tropical Queensland from 1993 to 2012. Descriptive spatial and temporal analyses were conducted using geographic information system tools and geostatistical techniques.

This figure is a bar graph plotting dengue incidence rates by age and gender in northern Queensland, Australia, 1993–2012.
