This map shows the average incidence of reported Valley fever per 100,000 people, by county, during 2010–2015. The rates in counties with fewer than five reported Valley fever cases, indicated by cross-hatching, might not be reliable. On this map, cases of Valley fever are classified according to people’s county of residence, which may not be where they acquired the infection. Cases in areas outside of regions where the fungus Coccidioides is believed to live are likely associated with travel to those disease-endemic areas.
