Making CDC Data Interactive
The NCHHSTP Atlas, launched in 2012, includes surveillance data for HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and tuberculosis (TB), and complements the annual surveillance reports for these diseases. The application features an interactive query function that allows for the comparison of disease rates and cases by state, gender, race/ethnicity, age group, transmission category (for HIV/AIDS only), and year. County-level data for STDs and some HIV variables are available, and coming soon, TB!
The NCHHSTP Atlas also provides the ability to view animated data trends, offers other mapping options, and allows for the export of data in Excel and graphics in PDF. All of the maps, tables, and bar graphs included in the Atlas are interactive.
This state-of-the-art application gives community leaders, public health professionals, policymakers, health care providers, and students a tool to visualize and understand trends of these often overlapping diseases. Prevention planners can use the Atlas to better determine the most effective, high-impact use of resources and prevention services.
