The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Influenza Division collects, compiles, and analyzes information on influenza activity year-round in the United States and produces FluView, a weekly influenza surveillance report, and FluView Interactive , which allows for more in-depth exploration of influenza surveillance data. The U.S. influenza surveillance system provides information in five categories collected from eight data sources. This is the first report of the 2016-2017 influenza season, which began on October 2, 2016.
The five categories and eight data components of CDC influenza surveillance are:
◦Viral Surveillance: U.S. World Health Organization (WHO) collaborating laboratories, the National Respiratory and Enteric Virus Surveillance System (NREVSS), and human infection with novel influenza A virus case reporting;
◦Mortality: National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) Mortality Surveillance System and influenza-associated pediatric deaths;
