Figure 1. Box plot of total incidence of West Nile virus disease in humans, by county, for the 8 northeastern states in the study area (CT, Connecticut; DE, Delaware; MA, Massachusetts; MD, Maryland; NJ, New Jersey; NY, New York; PA, Pennsylvania; RI, Rhode Island). The box plot provides the median, lower, and upper quartiles; the standard deviation; and any data outliers. This plot excludes those counties that did not report cases. The outliers tend to be the few cases that occurred in areas with low populations.
