Influenza, or flu, is an acute viral infection involving the respiratory tract that can occur in epidemics or pandemics. Influenza
can cause a person, especially older persons, to be more susceptible to bacterial pneumonia.

In 2011, the BRFSS changed its methodology from a landline only sample and weighting based on post-stratification to a landline/cell
phone sample and raking as the weighting methodology. The 2011 data on this graph is based on the new methodology (landline/cell
phone sample; raking). Due to changes in both sampling and the question format, 2011 data should be interpreted with caution
compared to previous years.
These rates are crude rates, not age-adjusted, given that the Healthy People 2020 Objective is based on crude rates.
