Prevalence of Disability and Disability Type Among Adults — United States, 2013

In 2013, the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) added five questions to identify disability in vision, cognition, mobility, self-care, and independent living. CDC analyzed data from the 2013 BRFSS to assess overall prevalence of any disability, as well as specific types of disability among noninstitutionalized U.S. adults. This report describes the results of that analysis.

Melioidosis Cases and Selected Reports of Occupational Exposures to Burkholderia pseudomallei — United States, 2008–2013

Melioidosis is an infection caused by the Gram-negative bacillus Burkholderia pseudomallei, which is naturally found in water and soil in areas endemic for melioidosis. Infection can be severe and sometimes fatal. The federal select agent program designates B. pseudomallei as a Tier 1 overlap select agent, which can affect both humans and animals. During January 2008–December 2013, BSPB provided technical assistance to 20 U.S. states and Puerto Rico involving 37 confirmed cases of melioidosis (34 confirmed human cases and three confirmed animal cases). Reporting of melioidosis cases can improve the ability to monitor the incidence and prevalence of the disease in the United States.

Summary of Notifiable Diseases — United States, 2012

Health-care providers in the United States are required to report certain infectious diseases to a specified state or local authority. A disease is designated as notifiable if timely information about individual cases is considered necessary for prevention and control of the disease. Each year, CDC publishes a summary of the cases of notifiable disease reported for the most recent year for which data is available. This report presents a summary of notifiable diseases for 2012.
