    "The MMWR Summary of Notifiable Diseases, United States, 2001 contains, in tabular and graphic form, the official statistics for the reported occurrence of nationally notifiable diseases in the United States for 2001. These statistics are collected and compiled from reports sent by state health departments to the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS), which is operated by CDC in collaboration with the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE). The Summary is located on the Internet at http://www2.cdc.gov/mmwr/ summary.html. This site also includes publications from past years. Because the dates of onset or diagnosis for notifiable diseases are not always reported, these surveillance data are presented by the year and week they were reported to CDC by public health officials in state and territorial health departments. The data are finalized and published each year in the Summary for use by state and local health departments; schools of medicine and public health; communications media; local, state, and federal agencies; and other agencies or persons interested in following the trends of reportable diseases in the United States. This publication also documents which diseases are considered national priorities for notification and the annual number of reported cases of such diseases. The Highlights section presents information on selected nationally notifiable diseases to provide a context in which to interpret surveillance and disease-trend data and to provide further information on the epidemiology and prevention of selected diseases. Part 1 contains tables showing incidence data for each of the diseases considered nationally notifiable during 2001. The tables provide the number of cases of notifiable diseases reported to CDC for 2001, as well as the distribution of cases by month and geographic location and by patient's age, sex, race, and Hispanic ethnicity. The data are final totals reported as of June 21, 2002, unless otherwise noted. Nationally notifiable diseases that are reportable in <40 states also do not appear in these tables. Ehrlichiosis, human, other or unspecified agent, is not reported in any tables because data are incomplete. In all tables, leprosy is listed as Hansen disease, and tickborne typhus fever is listed as Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF). In addition, syphilis (all stages) includes the following categories: latent; early latent; late latent; latent of unknown duration; neurosyphilis; late, with clinical manifestations other than neurosyphilis; syphilitic stillbirth, and congenital syphilis. Part 2 contains graphs and maps that depict summary data for many of the notifiable diseases described in tabular form in Part 1. Part 3 contains tables that list the number of cases of notifiable diseases reported to CDC since 1970. This section also includes a table enumerating deaths associated with specified notifiable diseases reported to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), CDC, during 1996-1999." - p. iv
