Table 2 Influenza-associated excess deaths per 100,000 population in West Germany (1984/85–1989/90) and united Germany (1990/91–2000/01), estimated by relative mortality distribution modelling (crude approach) and stratified by influenza type/subtype. Excess mortality figures are only displayed for the seasonally predominating type/subtype (>50% of human isolates).
