Sources of Data
The reportable communicable disease data in the NJSHAD query module
come from the New Jersey
Communicable Disease Reporting and Surveillance System (CDRSS)
maintained by the New Jersey Department of Health.
The database does not include HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, or sexually transmitted diseases (chancroid, chlamydia,
granuloma inguinale, gonorrhea, lymphogranuloma venereum, syphilis).
All data shown are for New Jersey residents. Technical Notes
for each year's data are available on the CDS website.
See the Communicable Disease Service
for more information about CDS programs, disease reporting requirements and regulations,
immunization requirements, forms, publications, and more.
Population estimates used to calculate rates are derived from the most recent vintage of
population estimates prepared by U.S. Bureau of the Census.
