Excerpt from Pennsylvania Health Bulletin, Vol. 65: January, 1915
This tells only a part of the story. Had the rate of 1906 continued to prevail in 1907 there would have been not only typhoid deaths as in 1906, but a certain number more in proportion to the growth of the population which is nearly each year. Reckoned in this way the deaths expected from typhoid, the morituri of typhoid, so to say, for 1907 would be instead of the which are re corded as occurring. The real gain then, or the number of persons saved from death by typhoid for that year is 451. This salvage goes on increasing as the rate falls from that with which our statistics start, and, as the table shows, last year persons were thus saved. Our rate for 1906 is certainly high, possibly it is accident ally too high. For the years just before that time the average rate for the states of the registration area, to which Pennsylvania did not then belong, was thirty-three or thereabouts. This rate, to our shame be it said, was at least three times that of England or Germany.
