ABCs Case Definition

Invasive Haemophilus influenzae (Hi) disease: isolation of Hi from normally sterile site in a resident of a surveillance area in 2011.

ABCs Methodology

ABCs personnel routinely contacted all microbiology laboratories serving acute care hospitals in their area to identify cases. Standardized case report forms that include information on demographic characteristics, clinical syndrome, and outcome of illness were completed for each identified case. Serotyping was done on Hi isolates at CDC and state laboratories. Regular laboratory audits assessed completeness of active surveillance and detected additional cases.

All rates of invasive Hi disease were calculated using population estimates for 2011. For national estimates, race and age specific rates of disease were applied from the aggregate surveillance areas to the race and age specific distribution of the 2011 U.S. population. Cases with missing data, excluding ethnicity, were multiply imputed using the sequential regression imputation method.

Healthy People 2020 Update

Invasive Haemophilus influenzae type b disease

Objective: Decrease the incidence of invasive Haemophilus influenzae type b disease to 0.27 cases per 100,000 persons less than 5 years of age.

Surveillance Note

At the start of this surveillance year (2011), missing race (n=64) data were multiply imputed using sequential regression imputation methods. Previously, missing race data were distributed in the same proportion as known cases.
