Notice to Readers: Final 2005 Reports of Notifiable Diseases

The tables listed in this report on pages 883--93 summarize finalized data from the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS) for 2005, as of June 30, 2006. These data will be published in more detail in the Summary of Notifiable Diseases, United States, 2005 (1). Because no cases of anthrax, diphtheria, neuroinvasive or non-neuroinvasive western equine encephalitis virus disease, severe acute respiratory syndrome--associated coronavirus syndrome, smallpox, or yellow fever were reported in the United States during 2005, these notifiable diseases do not appear in these tables.

Policies for reporting NNDSS data to CDC can vary by disease or reporting jurisdiction, depending on case status classification (i.e., confirmed, probable, or suspected). The publication criteria used for the 2005 finalized tables are listed in the "Print Criteria" column of the NNDSS event code list, available at The NNDSS website ( is updated annually to include the latest national surveillance case definitions approved by the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists for enumerating data on nationally notifiable infectious diseases.
