Notice to Readers: Changes in National Notifiable Diseases Data Presentation

This issue of MMWR incorporates modifications to Tables I and II, Cases of Notifiable Diseases, United States. The modifications will add diseases designated nationally notifiable by the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists and CDC. As of January 1, 2000, 60 infectious diseases were designated as notifiable at the national level (Table 1). Except where otherwise indicated, the data presented in the notifiable disease tables are transmitted to CDC through the National Electronic Telecommunications System for Surveillance (NETSS).

For the infectious diseases added to the list of nationally notifiable diseases that were reportable in <40 states in 2000, data now will be included in Table I; these diseases are Q fever and tularemia. Because not all nationally notifiable diseases are reportable in every state or territory, the reported numbers of cases of some diseases in Table I represent only the totals from states or territories in which the diseases are reportable. Cumulative totals of the number of reported cases of listeriosis by state and territory in 2000 were added to Table II.

Reported by: Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists. Div of Public Health Surveillance and Informatics, Epidemiology Program Office, CDC.
