C) 16,578 cases were prevented when K = 10%. D) 9,219 cases were prevented when K = 5%. Shaded symbols distinguish population size classes as follows: black circles indicate 18,000–21,000; gray circles indicate 35,000–60,000; white circles indicate 70,000–90,000; triangles indicate 100,000–140,000; squares indicate 150,000–300,000.
