INTRODUCTION Although numerous surveys of various types of population groups of the United States have been made, the writer found, by a survey of the available literature (Headlee, 1937), that no such surveys had been made in the state of Indiana. There were random case reports of native parasite infections, but no valid data were available concerning the incidence of these parasites among the general population of the state, or even among those individuals of particular population units of the area. Since that time a number of separate studies have been made by the writer or under his direction, with the purpose of making an accurate determination of the incidence of these infections in the general Hoosier population, and to evaluate their importance in relation to public health. These have included urban and rural inhabitants, university students, and two large groups of individuals in State Hospitals for the Insane (Headlee, 1939; Headlee, Kmecza and Cable, 1939; Kmecza, 1939; Hopp, 1940; and Headlee and Hopp, 1940).
