National Enteric Disease Surveillance : Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) annual report, 2012
Corporate Authors:National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (U.S.). Division of Foodborne Waterborne, and Environmental Diseases.
Description:The Laboratory-based Enteric Disease Surveillance (LEDS) system collects reports of isolates from laboratory-confirmed human STEC 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 STEC serotype 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 STEC infections reported for a given year divided by the state population for that year. Data were received from all 51 reporting jurisdictions (50 states plus the District of Columbia) in 2012.
Data in this report current as of 7/25/2014.
