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 http://www.cdc.gov/epo/dphsi/phs/files/nndsseventcodelistjanuary2006.pdf. The NNDSS website (http://www.cdc.gov/epo/dphsi/nndsshis.htm) 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. Population estimates for the states are from the National Center for Health Statistics bridged-race estimates of the July 1, 2004, U.S. resident population from the Vintage 2004 postcensal series by year, county, age, sex, race, and Hispanic origin, prepared under a collaborative arrangement with the U.S. Census Bureau. This data set was released on September 9, 2005, and is available at http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/about/major/dvs/popbridge/popbridge.htm. Populations for territories are 2004 estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau International Data Base Data Access Display Mode, available at http://www.census.gov/ipc/www/idbprint.html.
