What is the National Neurological Conditions Surveillance System?

Neurological disorders and conditions have substantial and sometimes devastating consequences for millions of people of all ages across the United States.

In 2016, Congress authorized Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to initiate development of a National Neurological Conditions Surveillance System (NNCSS).

This report provides an overview of CDC’s progress in developing and implementing surveillance for neurological conditions, which has focused initially on estimating prevalence and mortality of Parkinson’s disease (PD) and multiple sclerosis (MS).
