    "Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance, 1997 presents statistics and trends of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the United States through 1997. This annual publication is intended as a reference document for policy makers, program managers, health planners, researchers, and others who are concerned with the public health implications of these diseases. The figures and tables in this edition supersede those in earlier publications of these data. The surveillance information in this report is based on the following sources of data: (1) case reports from the STD project areas; (2) prevalence data from the Regional Infertility Prevention Projects, STD project areas, the U.S. Job Corps, and Jail STD Prevalence Monitoring Projects; (3) sentinel surveillance of gonococcal antimicrobial resistance from the Gonococcal Isolate Surveillance Project; and (4) national sample surveys implemented by federal and private organizations. The STD surveillance systems operated by state and local STD control programs, which provide the case report data, are the sources of most of the information in this publication. These systems are an integral part of program management at all levels of STD prevention and control in the United States. Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance, 1997 consists of four parts. The National Profile contains figures that provide an overview of STD morbidity in the United States. The accompanying text identifies major findings and trends for selected STDs. The Special Focus Profiles contain figures and text describing STDs in selected subgroups and populations that are a focus of national and state prevention efforts. The Detailed Tables provide statistical information about STDs at the state, county, city, and national levels. The Appendix includes the sources and limitations of the data used to produce this report; Table A1 displaying progress made toward Healthy People 2000 Priority Area 19 on Sexually Transmitted Diseases; and Figures A1-A3 showing progress made by states in converting from hardcopy aggregate reporting to electronic line-listed data submissions. Selected figures and tables in this document include a reference point that is used to monitor progress toward some of the Healthy People 2000 (HP2000) national health status objectives for STDs. The original HP2000 health status objectives were developed in 1989 and revised in 1995. The revisions are used as reference points in this edition of Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance, 1997." - p. vi
