2021 DMI Snapshot
The 2021 DMI Snapshot is both a record of our progress and a testament to the many thousands of people at CDC and among our public health partners who have worked over these long months to modernize public health surveillance and data in meaningful and lasting ways.
Since the start of the pandemic, CDC and our partners have been responding in ways that will make our data timelier, more complete, more accessible, and more usable for today’s challenges and beyond. This work has delivered an extraordinary amount of data to understand the burden of COVID-19, and the gains we have made are now building a bridge to a new kind of surveillance and better approaches to public health data.
While it is impossible to capture the complete scope of our data modernization work, the following report delivers highlights from what we accomplished together in 2021.
