Infectious and chronic disease data were collected from the individual states, and from many different offices within each government agency. For example, sexually transmitted disease data were available from one office while TB was from another and Hepatitis still another. Definitions, data suppression, and data availability varied from state to state, and in some cases, within a state depending on the particular disease.

 

Upon receipt of these data from the different sources, data were reviewed in detail to ensure the most consistent, comparable data were presented. Notation is made where they are different, however, there may be some underlying definitional differences that were not stipulated by the sources. Where data were collected from numerous state agencies, attempts were made to locate and obtain comparable national figures. These sources are not always directly comparable due to definitional differences and other reasons.

 

The data were standardized to the extent possible, but each state has its own definitions and use restrictions. Therefore, care must be taken when comparing these numbers. In particular, many county numbers are suppressed since the data obtained frequently omitted occurrences of less than three and occasionally less than 10. Suppressed data are represented as blanks in the database. Due to missing and unknown cases as well as suppressed data, the sum of race- and gender-specific data may not always equal the total. Blanks in the database may also represent cases in which states did not supply requested data; please refer to disease- and state-specific notes presented in detail in the following sections.

 

Disease counts represent the number of newly diagnosed cases in the calendar year. Rates per 100,000 population were calculated using the number of new cases divided by the total at-risk population. Population estimates used in rate calculations were based on Bridge Population data, which are described in more detail here.

 

Note on variable naming conventions: The first descriptor (Total, Male, or Female) refers to the sex and the second description (Total, White, Black, AI, API, Hisp, etc.) refers to the race of the variable described. Due to this convention, there are situations where the variable reads "Total Total," which means Total of male and female and Total of all races.

 

Race/Ethnicity: Most often data were available from the states with Hispanic being reported as an ethnicity rather than a race; therefore data are presented for the following race/ethnicity categories: White, Black/African American, American Indian/Alaskan Native, and Asian/Pacific Islander. Asian and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander populations are identified separately, but often are not populated with data because the majority of states were not able to separate these populations; in these cases, data are reported in the combined "Asian/Pacific Islander" category. Persons of Hispanic origin may be of any race. The primary exception to this is in the area of HIV/AIDS, where virtually all states report persons of Hispanic origin as a race. State-specific variations from these definitions are noted.

Beginning in 2004, race and ethnicity data were removed from the system when greater than 30% of cases reported unknown race or ethnicity.

 

Chronic Disease data were taken from the CDCís Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), which represented the only data available on certain topics. These topics include arthritis, asthma, cardiovascular health, cholesterol, diabetes and hypertension. Data are presented for single years (2001-2005) and for three year averages starting with 2000-2002. Data from these sources are based on samples of the population. Because of the small sample sizes in the states, no reliable estimates could be made at the county level. Complete documentation on survey methodology, historic information, confidence intervals, etc. can be found at the following website: http://www.cdc.gov/brfss. Additional information can be found here.

 

Incarcerated HIV data were from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Statistics. Annual reports may be found at: http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/pubalp2.htm#Prisoners

 

Cancer data were obtained from the National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR). Additional cancer information can be found here.

HIV/AIDS

 

State level HIV diagnoses data consists of HIV infection cases and cases of infection classified as stage 3 (AIDS). Data derived from the NCHHSTP Atlas .

 

Surveillance of HIV Infection:

As of April 2008, 57 areas (50 states, the District of Columbia, and 6 U.S. dependent areas) had implemented confidential name-based HIV infection reporting. The Atlas includes data from case reports from 56 areas (50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) in which laws or regulations require confidential reporting by name for adults and adolescents with confirmed diagnoses of HIV infection (including  stage 3 (AIDS)) as of December 31, 2011. Data for the Republic of Palau are not currently included in the Atlas.

 

After the removal of personal identifying information, data from these reports were submitted to CDC. Although AIDS cases have been reported to CDC since 1981, the implementation of HIV infection reporting has differed from state to state.  All states, the District of Columbia, and 6 U.S. dependent areas had fully implemented name-based HIV infection reporting by April 2008.

 

Data on diagnoses of HIV infection should be interpreted with caution. Data may not be representative of all persons with HIV because not all infected persons have been tested. Also, many states offer anonymous testing; the results of anonymous tests are not reported to the confidential name-based HIV registries of state and local health departments. The data presented in the Atlas provide minimum estimates of persons for whom HIV infection has been diagnosed and reported to the national HIV surveillance system. In addition, because surveillance practices differ, the reporting and the updating of a personís clinical and vital status differ among states. The completeness of reporting of HIV diagnoses is estimated at more than 80%.

 

More information on Surveillance of HIV Infection, Diagnoses, cell supression, etc can be found at the NCHHSTP Atlas in footnotes, and in HIV Surveillance Report technical notes.

 

Data collected from individual states (state and county level):

Please make careful note of each stateís reporting criteria. Because not all states report HIV similarly, comparisons between states may not be valid. Except where noted, HIV is defined as newly diagnosed (incident) cases of HIV, non-AIDS; cases which were originally diagnosed as HIV with AIDS or which progressed to AIDS in the same calendar year are generally excluded from HIV counts and included only in counts of AIDS.

 

HIV and AIDS counts and rates are for adults and adolescents age 13 and older. Newly reported counts of HIV/AIDS are provided for pediatric cases (under age 13), where available. Rates per 100,000 population age 13 and older were calculated using the number of new cases divided by the total at-risk population (age 13 and older) and are not age-adjusted. Population estimates used in rate calculations were based on Bridge Population data, which are described in more detail here.

 

Except where noted, Hispanic is mutually exclusive of other race categories, so all other races refer to the non-Hispanic component of that race.

 

Note, in 2002, the CDC initiated the Interstate Duplication Evaluation Project (IDEP), a formal evaluation comparing HIV/AIDS records in the national database across states in order to identify duplicate cases. IDEP efforts were completed in December 2004 and resulted in the removal of less than 5 percent of the total number of HIV/AIDS cases reported to the CDC since surveillance of the disease began. Duplicate cases were removed from national and state surveillance databases. As a result of this correction, there may be minor reductions in reported cases displayed over time.

 

HIV and AIDS data collection is a dynamic process, resulting in changes in case counts due to entry of new cases, conversion of existing cases from HIV to AIDS status and de-duplication efforts. Data collected on this system are not updated and thus reflect a single point-in-time estimate of known cases. As a result, data may not match other state or national publications.

 

Blank data in the database may indicate that data are suppressed or that data were not provided. Please refer to the state-specific notes below for further details.

 

Beginning in 2004, race and ethnicity data were removed from the system when greater than 30% of cases reported unknown race or ethnicity.

Sexually Transmitted Infections

Data sources refer to case counts of Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis. Syphilis refers to Primary/Secondary Syphilis only, not Early Latent, Late Latent, or Congenital. Hispanic is reported as an ethnicity, unless otherwise stated.

 

Beginning in 2004, race and ethnicity data were removed from the system when greater than 30% of cases reported unknown race or ethnicity.

 

Disease counts represent the number of newly diagnosed cases in the calendar year. Rates per 100,000 population were calculated using the number of new cases divided by the total at-risk population. Population estimates used in rate calculations were based on Bridge Population data, which are described in more detail here.

Hepatitis

Reported cases of Hepatitis A, B and C refer to acute cases only. Unless otherwise noted, Hispanic is an ethnicity, separate from other racial categories.

 

Disease counts represent the number of newly diagnosed cases in the calendar year. Rates per 100,000 population were calculated using the number of new cases divided by the total at-risk population. Population estimates used in rate calculations were based on Bridge Population data, which are described in more detail here.

 

Blank data in the database may indicate that data are suppressed or that data were not provided. Please refer to the state-specific notes below for further details.

 

Beginning in 2004, race and ethnicity data were removed from the system when greater than 30% of cases reported unknown race or ethnicity.

Unless otherwise noted, Hispanic is an ethnicity, separate from other racial categories.

 

Beginning in 2004, race and ethnicity data were removed from the system when greater than 30% of cases reported unknown race or ethnicity.

 

Disease counts represent the number of newly diagnosed cases in the calendar year. Rates per 100,000 population were calculated using the number of new cases divided by the total at-risk population. Population estimates used in rate calculations were based on Bridge Population data, which are described in more detail here.
