What's New in AtlasPlus

CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) has added updated HIV incidence and prevalence data, as well as new state and county-level HIV surveillance data to NCHHSTP AtlasPlus.

AtlasPlus gives you quick access to more than 15 years of CDC’s surveillance data on HIV, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and tuberculosis (TB). Users can also view social and economic data in conjunction with HIV, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB infections.

AtlasPlus Is:
  • Convenient: you can get the data when you want – all with a few clicks.
  • Quick: you don’t have to rely on someone else to compile and send you data.
  • Easy: you don’t need to sift through pages of surveillance reports.
  • Social: adding the AtlasPlus button to your website makes it even easier to access and share this powerful tool.

1. NEW Data

  • Updated data for 3 HIV indicators: estimated incidence, estimated diagnosed HIV among all persons living with HIV infection, and estimated persons living with HIV infection nationally and by state are available with up to 3-way stratifications. To view these data use the Tables function, select the indicator at the national level or for a specific state(s) for the year(s) of interest. Then select the variables by which you want the data stratified, for example, age group 25–34 years, black/African American, and male-to-male sexual contact. Data are often automatically stratified by sex, so in some cases, (e.g., blacks/African Americans aged 25–34 years) you may need to select both “Male” and “Female” for data to appear.
  • New state and county-level data available for HIV surveillance data: data includes additional demographic/risk stratifications (i.e., age group, race/ethnicity, sex, and transmission category) by state (up to 4-way stratifications) and county (up to 3-way stratifications). Data are displayed in accordance with the data suppression requirements approved by each state under a data re-release agreement with CDC.
  • Updated years of data available: 2017 surveillance data for HIV and TB and 2016 surveillance data for viral hepatitis and STDs.

2. Diverse Visual Data Characterization Capabilities

  • Line graphs by year
  • Pie or bar charts for sex
  • Bar charts for age group, race/ethnicity, transmission category (HIV), and country of birth (TB)
  • Bar charts by states or by counties
  • Ability to create two side-by-side maps or charts; e.g., compare two diseases, or one disease and one social determinants of health indicator

3. Enhanced Data Visualization

  • Faster and cleaner data displays
  • Change from flash format to HTML5, which means faster and cleaner data displays, as well as mobile access
  • Significant upgrade to the Tables function; based on user feedback, we made it more intuitive to build tables based on the exact subset of the data you want to view
