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.
