Use the change year/week button to select a year of interest. Note that the tables will list only diseases with a prevalence of more than 1000 in the previous year, so the list of disease may differ in different years. 3. Select a disease that happens rather frequently or your graph will be very boring. Look at the top of the table where the total number of cases in the US in the previous two years is reported. 4.
