    "This publication contains summary tables of the official statistics for the reported occurrence of nationally notifiable diseases in the United States for the year 1994. This information is collected and compiled from reports to the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS). Because the dates of onset and dates of diagnosis for notifiable diseases are often unknown, these surveillance data are presented by the week that they were reported to public health officials. These data are then finalized and published in the MMWR Summary of Notifiable Diseases, United States, 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 conditions in the United States. Publication of the annual summary also ensures documentation of diseases that are considered national priorities for notification and of the annual number of cases of such diseases. Part 1 contains information on morbidity for each of the conditions considered nationally notifiable during 1994. In all tables, leprosy is listed as Hansen disease and typhus fever (tick-borne) as Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF). The tables show the number of cases of notifiable diseases reported to CDC for 1994, as well as the distribution of cases by month and geographic location, and by patient's age, race, and ethnicity. The data are final totals as of July 7, 1995, unless otherwise noted. Part 2 contains graphs and maps depicting summary data for many of the notifiable conditions described in tabular form in Part I. Part 3 includes tables showing the number of cases of notifiable diseases reported to CDC and to the National Office of Vital Statistics since 1945. It also includes a table on deaths associated with specified notifiable diseases reported to the National Center for Health Statistics, CDC, for the period 1983-1992." - p. ii
