The frequency of infection by 21 bacterial species was monitored over 6-month intervals (the first and second halves of each year) and ranked such that 1 denotes the species most frequently associated with bacterial infection. The column heading '# infections' represents the total number of patients infected with the species indicated. NA: data not available, not significant to the ranking list.
