Notice to Readers: Final 2001 Reports of Notifiable Diseases

The notifiable diseases tables on pages 723--730 summarize final data for 2001. Final as of June 21, 2002, these data will be published in more detail in the Summary of Notifiable Diseases, United States, 2001 (1). Because no cases of western equine encephalitis, paralytic poliomyelitis, or yellow fever were reported in the United States during 2001, these nationally notifiable diseases do not appear in these tables. Policies for reporting notifiable disease cases can vary by disease or reporting jurisdiction depending on case status classification (i.e., confirmed, probable, or suspected). Population estimates for the states are from the Population Division, U.S. Bureau of the Census: 2001 Estimates of the Population, Popular Table (2). Population numbers for territories are 2001 estimates from the U.S. Bureau of the Census IDB Data Access Display Mode (3).
