* Please Note:
- Data for years 1999 – 2004 and 2005 and later were collected using different surveys and methods. As a result the data for years 1999 – 2004 is not directly comparable to the data for year 2005 and later.
- Information collected by CDC EHDI reflects data that states and territories have actually documented without any estimation. As a result, data reported by CDC EHDI may differ from other national sources.
