Abstract

The authors made use of maps prepared in the projection system known as the "Universal Transverse Mercator" (Gauss-Kruger projection) for the study of an epidemiometric indicator in tuberculosis, namely the instantaneous prevalence of bacili carriers on December 31 1978 in the Ilfov District. The representation allows to evaluate the density of sources of infection, and as a consequence, of areas in which antiepidemic measured have to be intensified. The extension of the study to other districts could provide data for assessing the epidemiologic potential in various territories, as well as comparisons and the dynamics of the potential. The method could also be used in the study of other epidemiometric indicators.
