AtlasPlus Launched

Dear Colleague,

January 26, 2017

CDC has launched an updated tool that allows public access to HIV, viral hepatitis, STD, and TB surveillance data and the ability to visualize the data in the form of maps, charts, and tables. The updated tool, the NCHHSTP AtlasPlus, is an enhanced version of NCHHSTP’s 2012 Atlas. By accessing AtlasPlus, users have access to data from 2000-2015 for most indicators. In addition, with this tool, users can create:

  • Maps at the state- or county-level
  • Charts such as
    • Line graphs by year
    • Pie charts for sex
    • Bar charts for age, race/ethnicity, transmission category (HIV), country of birth (TB)
    • Bar charts for state and county
  • Tables that contrast indicators from multiple states or counties by age, race/ethnicity, sex, or transmission category (HIV diagnoses)
  • Two side-by-side maps or charts

CDC’s surveillance systems and data are second to none and critical to our prevention work. Getting this information to you and all who need it most in an accessible, usable, and meaningful format is a primary goal for CDC. Access reliable, comprehensive, and respected surveillance data using NCHHSTP AtlasPlus. Whether you are a policy maker, prevention staff, government personnel, or the general public, I encourage you to visit the new NCHHSTP AtlasPlus website for more information on this update and upcoming webinars.

Sincerely,
