Figure 2. . . Numbers and annual rates of initial coccidioidomycosis-associated hospitalizations (N = 15,747) in endemic and less endemic regions of California by year of admission, 2000–2011. For this study, 6 California counties (Fresno, Kings, Kern, Madera, San Luis Obispo, and Tulare) where coccidioidomycosis is endemic were defined as the endemic region, and all other counties, where coccidioidomycosis is less endemic, were defined as the less endemic region.
