Notice to Readers: Final 2003 Reports of Notifiable Diseases

The notifiable diseases tables on pages 688--696 summarize final National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System data for 2003. Final as of June 30, 2004, these data will be published in more detail in the Summary of Notifiable Diseases, United States, 2003 (1). Because no cases of anthrax, Powassan encephalitis, western equine encephalitis, paralytic poliomyelitis, or yellow fever were reported in the United States during 2003, these nationally notifiable diseases do not appear in these tables. Policies for reporting notifiable disease cases can vary by disease or reporting jurisdiction depending on case status classification (i.e., confirmed, probable, or suspected). Population estimates for the states and for Puerto Rico are from the U.S. Census Bureau as of July 1, 2002 (2). Population numbers for territories are 2002 estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau IDB Data Access---Display Mode (3).
