    This volume contains final figures on the reported incidence of notifiable diseases for 1978 as well as selected data on non-notifiable conditions of special interest. The first section of this summary contains morbidity and mortality information for each of the 46 currently reportable conditions. Tables in this section contain the number of cases of notifiable diseases reported to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) during the past 10 years, and for 1978 describe the distribution of cases by age, month, and geographic location. The second section of this volume includes additional epidemiologic information regarding 36 reportable conditions. The third section contains data about other conditions of special interest. The data from all these sections come either from annual summary reports or case-investigation forms, which are completed by state and territorial health departments as well as from other sources. Finally, a brief historical summary of morbidity reporting and surveillance in the United States is contained in this volume.
