  • —: No reported cases — The reporting jurisdiction did not submit any cases to CDC.
  • U: Unavailable — The data are unavailable.
  • * The rate is calculated using population less than 1 year of age.
  • † Reportable in <25 states.
  • § Total number of reported laboratory-positive dengue cases, including all confirmed cases [by anti-dengue virus (DENV) molecular diagnostic methods or seroconversion of anti-DENV IgM] and all probable cases (by a single, positive anti-DENV IgM).
  • ¶ The rate is calculated using population less than 5 years of age.
  • ** Chronic hepatitis B and C data are not included in NNDSS tables but reported case counts are included in the annual Summary of Viral Hepatitis, published online by CDC's Division of Viral Hepatitis, available at https://www.cdc.gov/hepatitis/statistics/2016surveillance/index.htm.
  • †† The rate is calculated using population less than 2 years of age.
  • §§ The rate is calculated using population less than 18 years of age.
  • ¶¶ Includes drug resistant and susceptible cases of Invasive Pneumococcal Disease. This condition was previously named Streptococcus pneumoniae invasive disease and cases were reported to CDC using different event codes to specify whether the cases were drug resistant or in a defined age group, such as <5 years.
  • *** Includes Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Shiga toxin-positive Escherichia coli (including O157, non-O157, and not serogrouped).
  • ††† Data reported to ArboNET using the national surveillance case definition for congenital Zika virus disease or infection (CSTE Position Statement 16-ID-01). Additional data reported to the US Zika Pregnancy Registry for outcomes of pregnancies with laboratory evidence of possible Zika virus infection are available at https://www.cdc.gov/pregnancy/zika/data/pregnancy-outcomes.html. Cases reported to the US Zika Pregnancy Registry might not meet the national surveillance case definition for congenital Zika virus disease or infection.
