Table I

TABLE I. Provisional cases of infrequently reported notifiable diseases (<1,000 cases reported during the preceding year) — United States,
week ending March 29, 2008 (13th Week)*
5-year
Current Cum weekly Total cases reported for previous years
Disease week 2008 average† 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 States reporting cases during current week (No.)
—: No reported cases. N: Not notifiable. Cum: Cumulative year-to-date counts.
* Incidence data for reporting years 2007 and 2008 are provisional, whereas data for 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006 are finalized.
† Calculated by summing the incidence counts for the current week, the 2 weeks preceding the current week, and the 2 weeks following the current week, for a total of 5
preceding years. Additional information is available at http://www.cdc.gov/epo/dphsi/phs/files/5yearweeklyaverage.pdf.
§ Not notifiable in all states. Data from states where the condition is not notifiable are excluded from this table, except in 2007 and 2008 for the domestic arboviral diseases
and influenza-associated pediatric mortality, and in 2003 for SARS-CoV. Reporting exceptions are available at http://www.cdc.gov/epo/dphsi/phs/infdis.htm.
¶ Includes both neuroinvasive and nonneuroinvasive. Updated weekly from reports to the Division of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases, National Center for Zoonotic, Vector-
Borne, and Enteric Diseases (ArboNET Surveillance). Data for West Nile virus are available in Table II.
** The names of the reporting categories changed in 2008 as a result of revisions to the case definitions. Cases reported prior to 2008 were reported in the categories:
Ehrlichiosis, human monocytic (analogous to E. chaffeensis); Ehrlichiosis, human granulocytic (analogous to Anaplasma phagocytophilum), and Ehrlichiosis, unspecified, or
other agent (which included cases unable to be clearly placed in other categories, as well as possible cases of E. ewingii).
†† Data for H. influenzae (all ages, all serotypes) are available in Table II.
§§ Updated monthly from reports to the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention, National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention. Implementation of HIV reporting
influences the number of cases reported. Updates of pediatric HIV data have been temporarily suspended until upgrading of the national HIV/AIDS surveillance data
management system is completed. Data for HIV/AIDS, when available, are displayed in Table IV, which appears quarterly.
¶¶ Updated weekly from reports to the Influenza Division, National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. Fifty-nine cases occurring during the 2007–08 influenza
season have been reported.
*** No measles cases were reported for the current week.
††† Data for meningococcal disease (all serogroups) are available in Table II.
§§§ In 2008, Q fever acute and chronic reporting categories were recognized as a result of revisions to the Q fever case definition. Prior to that time, case counts were not
differentiated with respect to acute and chronic Q fever cases.
¶¶¶ The one rubella case reported for the current week was unknown.
**** Updated weekly from reports to the Division of Viral and Rickettsial Diseases, National Center for Zoonotic, Vector-Borne, and Enteric Diseases.
