DIVISION OF SANITARY REPORTS AND STATISTICS.
Asst. Surg. Gen. B. J. LLOYD, Chief of Division.
The PUBLIC HEALTH REPORTS are issued weekly by the United States Public
Health Service through its Division of Sanitary Reports and Statistics, pur-
suant to acts of Congress approved February 15, 1893, and August 14, 1912.
They contain: (1) Current information of the prevalence and geographic dis-
tribution of preventable diseases in the United States in so far as data are
obtainable, and of cholera, plague, smallpox, typhus fever, yellow fever, and
other communicable diseases throughout the world. (2) Articles relating to
the cause, prevention, or control of disease. (3) Other pertinent information
regarding sanitation and the conservation of the public health.
The PUBLIC HEALTH REPORTS are intended primarily for distribution to health
officers, members of boards or departments of health, and those directly or
indirectly engaged in or connected with public health or sanitary work. Arti-
cles of general or special interest are issued as reprints from the PUBLIC
HEALTH REPORTS or as supplements, and in these forms are available for gen-
eral distribution to those desiring them.
Requests for and communications regarding the PUBLIC HEALTH REPORTS,
reprints, or supplements should be addressed to the Surgeon General, United
States Public Health Service, Washington, D. C.
The Public Health Service is unable to supply the demand for bound copies of
the PUBLIC HEALTH REPORTS. Librarians and others receiving the PUBLIC
HEALTH REPORTS regularly should preserve them for binding, as it is not prac-
ticable to furnish bound copies on individual requests.
