Methodology - Surveillance Population

U.S. map highlights 10 areas participating in ABCs surveillance: entire states of Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Minnesota, New Mexico and Oregon as well as specific areas within California, Colorado, New York and Tennessee.

Surveillance Areas

The total population of invasive disease surveillance is approximately 42.8 million. However, most areas restrict the population further for certain pathogens to ensure complete reporting and good audit data. The table below illustrates the populations under surveillance for each pathogen and area as of January 2014.
