Notice to Readers: Final 2014 Reports of Nationally Notifiable Infectious Diseases


September 18, 2015 / 64(36);1019-1033

The tables listed in this report on pages 1020–1033 summarize finalized data, as of June 30, 2015, from the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS) for 2014. These data will be published in more detail in the Summary of Notifiable Diseases, United States, 2014 (1). Because no cases were reported in the United States during 2014, the following diseases do not appear in these early release tables: anthrax; dengue hemorrhagic fever; eastern equine encephalitis, nonneuroinvasive; poliomyelitis, paralytic; poliovirus infection, nonparalytic; severe acute respiratory syndrome-associated coronavirus disease (SARS-CoV); smallpox; vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA); western equine encephalitis virus disease, neuroinvasive and nonneuroinvasive; and yellow fever.
Policies for reporting NNDSS data to CDC can vary by disease or reporting jurisdiction, depending on case status classification (i.e., confirmed, probable, or suspected). The publication criteria used for the 2014 finalized tables are listed in the "Print Criteria" column of the NNDSS event code list, available at Adobe PDF file.
In addition, only cases from reporting jurisdictions where the nationally notifiable disease is reportable are published. The NNDSS website is updated annually to include the latest national surveillance case definitions approved by the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) for classifying and enumerating cases of nationally notifiable infectious diseases.
Population estimates are from the National Center for Health Statistics postcensal estimates of resident population of the United States for July 1, 2013–July 1, 2014, by year, county, single-year of age (0–≥85 years), bridged race (white, black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, or Pacific Islander), Hispanic origin (not Hispanic or Latino, Hispanic or Latino), and sex (Vintage 2014), prepared under a collaborative arrangement with the U.S. Census Bureau. Population estimates for states as of June 25, 2015 are available at Population estimates for territories are 2014 estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau (2).
