Reports and Publications


CDC currently has six surveillance systems for obtaining information about Salmonella. They serve different purposes and provide information on various features of the organism’s epidemiology, such as number of outbreaks, antimicrobial-resistant infections, and subtypes.

Salmonella Atlas

New! CDC has posted a 248 page Salmonella Atlas 1968-2011. The first-of-its-kind report chronicles over 40 years of laboratory-confirmed surveillance data on 32 Salmonella serotypes and includes analyses by age, sex, season, and geography, down to the county level. Learn more about the Salmonella Atlas.

MMWR Articles

The Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) series is prepared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Often called “the voice of CDC,” the MMWR series is the agency’s primary vehicle for scientific publication of timely, reliable, authoritative, accurate, objective, and useful public health information and recommendations. Learn more by visiting the CDC Salmonella Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report Articles web page.


CDC ‘s published information about Salmonella in peer reviewed journals and on other CDC websites is found at the CDC Salmonella Reference web page.
