In France, the number of reports of suspected CJD increased from 1998 to 2000, probably due to the increase in the requests for biological tests: respectively 459 in 1998, 590 in 1999, and 823 in 2000. For all three years, the distribution by sex is similar, with a sex ratio (M/F) of 1.05. The proportion of suspected cases aged under 50 remained stable (16% of all reports in 1998–2000). The number of sporadic CJD, confirmed or probable, was stable, with a mortality ratio of 1.38 per one million in 1998, 1.56 in 1999, and 1.41 in 2000.
