National, State, and Selected Local Area Vaccination Coverage Among Children Aged 19–35 Months — United States, 2013

In the United States, among children born during 1994–2013, vaccination will prevent an estimated 322 million illnesses, 21 million hospitalizations, and 732,000 deaths during their lifetimes. Since 1994, the National Immunization Survey (NIS) has monitored vaccination coverage among children aged 19–35 months in the United States. This report provides national, regional, state, and selected local area vaccination coverage estimates for children born during January 2010–May 2012, based on results from the 2013 NIS.

Prevalence of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis — United States, 2010–2011

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a progressive and fatal neuromuscular disease for which no cure has been identified. In 2009, the federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) implemented the National ALS Registry to collect and analyze data regarding persons with ALS in the United States. During October 19, 2010–December 31, 2011, a total of 12,187 persons meeting the surveillance case definition of definite ALS were identified by the Registry, for a prevalence of 3.9 cases of ALS per 100,000 persons in the U.S. general population. Data collected by the National ALS Registry are being used to describe the prevalence of ALS in the United States better and to help facilitate research.

Strategies for Reducing Health Disparities — Selected CDC-Sponsored Interventions, United States, 2014

In 2011, CDC published the first CDC Health Disparities and Inequalities Report (CHDIR) , which examined health disparities in the United States associated with various characteristics, including race/ethnicity, sex, income, education, disability status, and geography. The 2013 CHDIR included updated most topics from the 2011 CHDIR and presented several new topics. This report complements the CHDIR series by presenting five CDC-sponsored interventions that have been applied to decrease health disparities in the United States.
