AtlasPlus

Map of the world

Explore the updated NCHHSTP AtlasPlus tool and create customized tables, maps, and charts to view social and economic data in conjunction with CDC’s surveillance data on HIV, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB.

CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention’s (NCHHSTP) AtlasPlus is an interactive tool that gives users the ability to create customized tables, maps, and charts using more than 15 years of CDC’s surveillance data on HIV, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and tuberculosis (TB).

AtlasPlus also provides access to indicators on social determinants of health allowing users to view social and economic data in conjunction with surveillance data for each disease.

How to get started!

In June 2018, an update to AtlasPlus added 11 new indicators. The update adds six new HIV indicators.

Three indicators are available nationally and by state:

  • Estimated incidence;
  • Estimated diagnosed HIV among all persons living with HIV infection; and
  • Estimated persons living with HIV infection.

Three indicators are available by state:

  • Linkage to care
  • Receipt of HIV medical care; and
  • Viral suppression.

The newest area of information added to AtlasPlus, social determinants of health, includes five indicators available nationally and by state and county:

  • Poverty;
  • Uninsured;
  • Less than a high school education;
  • Vacant housing; and
  • Percentage of population living in rural areas or County urbanization level.

With the inclusion of this information, users now have the ability to look at the complex, integrated, and overlapping social structures and economic systems that influence most health inequities. Users can also gain a deeper understanding of the intersection of social determinants of health and HIV, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB infections. Harnessing the data is key to understanding these diseases and their effect on health, as well as designing and implementing more effective prevention programs and interventions.

AtlasPlus is:

  • Convenient: you can get the data when you want – all with a few clicks.
  • Quick: you don’t have to rely on someone else to compile and send you data.
  • Easy: you don’t need to sift through pages of surveillance reports.
  • Visual: you can see trends through line graphs, tables, and maps.
  • Social: adding the AtlasPlus button to your website makes it even easier to access and share this powerful tool.
