Lyme Disease Data File

To facilitate the public health and research community's access to NNDSS data on Lyme disease, CDC has developed a public use dataset. Based on reports submitted to CDC, this dataset provides the number of confirmed cases by county for the years 1992–2011, in four 5–year intervals. County tabulation is by American National Standard Institute (ANSI) [formerly Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS)] codes. County codes of "0" represent "unknown" county of residence within each state. More recent county-level case counts are not publicly available at this time.
