Google Launches Flu Trends For 121 U.S. Cities

Google just launched an updated version of Google Flu Trends, a service that predicts flu trends by tracking flu related queries on the company's search engine. Until now, Google only showed aggregate data for states in the United States. Starting today, Flu Trends will show data down to the city level for 121 cities. As Google notes in today's announcement, this update was timed to coincide with the National Influenza Vaccination Week.

Google also offers Flu Trends data on a country level for Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and most of Western Europe. Data on Flu Trends is updated daily.
