About NCHHSTP AtlasPlus

NCHHSTP AtlasPlus is an interactive tool that gives users the ability to create customized tables, maps, and charts using nearly 20 years of CDC’s surveillance data on HIV, viral hepatitis, STD, and TB. AtlasPlus also provides access to indicators on social determinants of health (SDOH) allowing users to view social and economic data in conjunction with surveillance data for each disease..

NCHHSTP AtlasPlus has Charts, Maps, and Tables functions. Using any of these functions, you can view diseases by year, geography, and demographics.


Using the Charts function, users can generate a series of charts that can be downloaded. In this section, users can interact with the available data on HIV, viral hepatitis, STD, TB, and SDOH to:

  • Create line graphs by year;
  • Generate pie or bar charts, including confidence intervals where applicable, for sex at birth;
  • Produce bar charts, including confidence intervals where applicable, by age group, race/ethnicity, transmission category (HIV), country of birth (TB);
  • Create bar charts by states or counties;
  • Make two side-by-side sets of charts; e.g., of two diseases or 1 disease and 1 SDOH;
  • Download the data into an Excel file; and,
  • Save the chart in a PowerPoint file.

The Map function in the NCHHSTP AtlasPlus enables users to:

  • Create custom maps and examine patterns of HIV, viral hepatitis, STD, TB, or SDOH by geographic areas;
  • Map cases or rates by a specific sex at birth, race/ethnicity, age group, transmission category (HIV cases), or country of birth (TB data);
  • Create two side-by-side maps; e.g., of two diseases, two race/ethnicity groups, or two age groups;
  • Create state-specific maps for indicators with county-level data
  • Download the data into an Excel file; and,
  • Save the map in a PowerPoint file.

The Tables function lets the user build tables based on the exact subset of the data the user wants to view. Using the Tables function, the user can create tables that:

  • Compare two or more diseases (e.g., HIV and TB) or SDOH indicators to compare at the national, regional, state, or county level
  • Examine multiple geographic areas (e.g., VA, MD, and DC);
  • Display two or more years of data (e.g., 2010-2016);
  • Examine subpopulations of interest (e.g., by race, age group, sex at birth); and,
  • Can be downloaded into an Excel file.
