ABCs Case Definition

Invasive Haemophilus influenzae (Hi) disease: isolation of Hi from normally sterile site in a resident of a surveillance area in 2012.

ABCs Methodology

ABCs personnel routinely contacted all microbiology laboratories serving acute care hospitals in their area to identify cases. Standardized case report forms that include information on demographic characteristics, clinical syndrome, and outcome of illness were completed for each identified case. Serotyping was done on Hi isolates at CDC and state laboratories. Regular laboratory audits assessed completeness of active surveillance and detected additional cases.

All rates of invasive Hi disease were calculated using population estimates for 2012. For national estimates, race‑ and age‑specific rates of disease were applied from the aggregate surveillance areas to the race‑ and age‑specific distribution of the 2012 U.S. population. Cases with missing data, excluding ethnicity, were multiply imputed using the sequential regression imputation method.
