ABCs Report: Streptococcus pneumoniae, 2010

Active Bacterial Core Surveillance (ABCs): Emerging Infections Program Network

Print-friendly version of this surveillance report [1 page]

Surveillance Note

At the start of this surveillance year (2010), missing race (n=538) and deaths (n=2) data were multiply imputed using sequential regression imputation methods. Previously, missing race data were distributed in the same proportion as known cases. For comparison, view the 2010 surveillance report based on the previous method.

ABCs Areas

California (San Francisco County and children < 5 years in Alameda and Contra Costa counties); Colorado (5 county Denver area); Connecticut;  Georgia (20 county Atlanta area); Maryland (6 county Baltimore area); Minnesota; New Mexico; New York (15 county Rochester and Albany areas and children <5 years in Erie county); Oregon (3 county Portland area); Tennessee (20 counties)

ABCs Population

The surveillance areas represent 29,757,552 persons.

ABCs Case Definition

Invasive pneumococcal disease: isolation of Streptococcus pneumoniae from normally sterile site in resident of a surveillance area in 2010.

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.  Pneumococcal isolates were collected and sent to reference laboratories for susceptibility testing  using CLSI methods and serotyping. Regular laboratory audits assessed completeness of active surveillance and detected additional cases.

Rates of  invasive pneumococcal disease were calculated using  population estimates for 2010. For national estimates, race- and age-specific rates of disease were applied from the aggregate surveillance area to the age and racial distribution of the 2010 U.S. population.  Cases with missing data, excluding ethnicity, were multiply imputed using the sequential regression imputation method.
