  • Description:
    The Laboratory-based Enteric Disease Surveillance (LEDS) system collects reports of isolates of laboratory- confirmed human Shigella infections from state public health laboratories. Reporting to LEDS is voluntary, and the number of states submitting reports varies somewhat from year to year, although almost all states report every year. Occasionally, more than one isolate is reported from a single episode of infection in a person; this report includes only one isolate of a given Shigella species per person within a 30-day period. In this report, we summarize the number of infections reported, and also report incidence rates (cases per 100,000 population), which are calculated as the number of Shigella infections in humans reported for a given year divided by the state population for that year. Data were received from 50 of 51 reporting jurisdictions (49 states plus the District of Columbia) in 2012.
