An  Atlas of Salmonella in the United States; Serotype-Specific Surveillance 1968-1986
  • Description:
    The Salmonella Surveillance System, begun in 1962 at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), collects reports of isolates of Salmonella from human and nonhuman sources from every state in the United States and District of Columbia (1). The reports are sent regularly by State and Territorial Epidemiologists and Public Health Laboratory Directors, who provide demographic data and serotype identification for each isolate from humans; in addition, reports of nonhuman isolates are sent by the U. S. Department of Agriculture. This surveillance system is distinct from the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) system, which is a clinically based notifiable disease reporting system. The MMWR system has included typhoid and nontyphoid salmonellosis as separate categories since 1942,but it does not include laboratory confirmation or serotype (2). The Salmonella Surveillance System has maintained data about all reported isolates of Salmonella on magnetic tape since 1968. This publication is an analysis of data from this system reported during the 19-year period from 1968 through 1986.
