Figure 3

Annual age-standardized Creutzfeldt-Jakob (CJD) death rates per million population were calculated for chronic wasting disease (CWD)–endemic (ϒ) and non–CWD-endemic (∆) counties. Population rates were age-standardized to the 2001 age distribution for Colorado (34). We also display smoothed rates for the endemic (―) and non–CWD-endemic (∙ − ∙) counties.
