Change in the Reporting of AIDS Cases

As of May 2, 1992, the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) case reports in MMWR's tables of selected notifiable diseases will be updated monthly rather than weekly. Because state and local health departments forward AIDS case reports to CDC on a monthly basis, this change will ensure that the data in MMWR are consistent with these reporting practices and should facilitate use of these data to monitor trends in the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/AIDS epidemic. A footnote providing the date of the last update will accompany the tables.

For more detailed statistics on AIDS, a quarterly HIV/AIDS surveillance report is available from the CDC National AIDS Clearinghouse, P.O. Box 6003, Rockville, MD 20849-6003; telephone (800) 485-5231.
