Updated Preparedness and Response Framework for Influenza Pandemics

MMWR Surveillance Summaries

October 24, 2014 / Vol. 63 / No. SS–9
Surveillance for Certain Health Behaviors Among States and Selected Local Areas — Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, United States, 2011

The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is an ongoing, state-based, random digit-dialed telephone survey of non-institutionalized adults aged ≥18 years residing in the United States. BRFSS collects data on health-risk behaviors, chronic diseases and conditions, access to health care, and use of preventive health services and practices related to the leading causes of death and disabilities in the United States. In 2011, BRFSS adopted a new weighting methodology (iterative proportional fitting, or raking) and included data from respondents using cellular telephones only. This report presents results for the year 2011 for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and participating U.S. territories including the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and Guam, 198 MMSAs, and 224 counties.

Summary of Notifiable Diseases — United States, 2012

Health-care providers in the United States are required to report certain infectious diseases to a specified state or local authority. A disease is designated as notifiable if timely information about individual cases is considered necessary for prevention and control of the disease. Each year, CDC publishes a summary of the cases of notifiable disease reported for the most recent year for which data is available. This report presents a summary of notifiable diseases for 2012.

Estimating the Future Number of Cases in the Ebola Epidemic — Liberia and Sierra Leone, 2014–2015

The first cases of the current West African Ebola epidemic were reported on March 22, 2014, with a report of 49 cases in Guinea. By August 31, 2014, a total of 3,685 probable, confirmed, and suspected cases in West Africa had been reported. If trends continue without scale-up of effective interventions, by September 30, 2014, Sierra Leone and Liberia will have approximately 8,000 Ebola cases. This report summarizes the efforts of the EbolaResponse tool to provide estimates of the potential number of future cases.
