  • Description:
    Introduction to the Summary of Acute Occupational Pesticide-Related Illness and Injury — United States, 2007–2010 -- Surveillance for Cancer Incidence and Mortality — United States, 2011 -- Elevated Blood Lead Levels Among Employed Adults — United States, 1994–2012 -- Childhood Blood Lead Levels — United States, 2007–2012 -- Surveillance for Silicosis — Michigan and New Jersey, 2003–2010. -- Foodborne and Waterborne Disease Outbreaks — United States, 1971–2012.

    With this 2015 Summary of Notifiable Noninfectious Conditions and Disease Outbreaks — United States, CDC is publishing official statistics for the occurrence of nationally notifiable noninfectious conditions and disease outbreaks for the first time in the same volume of MMWR as the annual Summary of Notifiable Infectious Diseases.

    This two-part publication provides the opportunity for readers to review information on all of the nationally notifiable conditions identified by the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) in collaboration with CDC. This combined publication is the result of a February 2013 request by CSTE for CDC to present surveillance data on all nationally notifiable conditions and disease outbreaks in the same publication. In recent years, CSTE formalized and expanded the list of nationally notifiable conditions to include foodborne and waterborne disease outbreaks and four noninfectious conditions: acute pesticide-related illness and injury, cancer, silicosis, and elevated blood lead levels.* After discussion within the organization and with subject matter experts at CDC, CSTE concluded that inclusion of information on all nationally notifiable conditions in the same MMWR annual surveillance summary of nationally notifiable conditions would be useful and important for the public and public health professionals.

    This Summary of Notifiable Noninfectious Conditions and Disease Outbreaks includes six chapters treating the following subjects: acute pesticide-related illness and injury arising from occupational exposure (2), cancer (3), elevated blood lead levels among employed adults (4), elevated blood lead levels among children (5), silicosis (6), and foodborne and waterborne disease outbreaks (7). Information about nonoccupational acute pesticide-related illness could not be included this year because the data were not ready for publication. However, the CDC programs involved in pesticide-related illness surveillance activities plan to include these data in the 2016 MMWR publication of the annual Summary of Notifiable Noninfectious Conditions and Disease Outbreaks.

    Each of the six chapters in this Summary (Noninfectious) presents the most recent statistics available to the CDC program. Local, state, and territorial public health departments and other agencies within those jurisdictions (e.g., departments of labor, environmental protection agencies, cancer registries, and their agents) submit data on these conditions and outbreaks to CDC programs at the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, NCEH, and NIOSH. Previously, the programs compiled and published surveillance data on these noninfectious conditions and disease outbreaks periodically in multiple venues with variable timeframes and formats.

    The Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services (CSELS) coordinated the development and publication of this summary. Comments and suggestions from readers on this new combined publication are encouraged, including ones about whether the information presented could be made more useful. Comments should be sent to NNDSSweb@cdc.gov.
