The greatest incidence was in 2012 (11.85 per 100000 people), whereas the lowest incidence was in 2001 (3.62 per 100000 people). Taking occupational exposure into account, the ranchers, farmers female household keepers, and students had the highest cases of brucellosis. The most age group that involved with this disease was patients over 51 years and 21-30 years. The majority of patients had Wright test titer=1: 320 in serology titration.
