*EXCLUDES UNKNOWN AGES
In 1980, the reported age-specific incidence rate of rubella decreased for all age groups compared to 1979, with the decrease seen greatest for the 15-19-year-old age group. This resulted in a dramatic change in the age-specific characteristics. From 1976 through 1979, more than 70% of the reported cases of rubella were 15 years of age. In 1980, only 47% of the cases were in this age group. Reflecting this decrease in the incidence rate of rubella in older individuals, the highest age-specific incidence rate was for 0-4 year olds. The proportion of cases with unknown age was 24% for 1980, a decrease from 32% for 1979.
