States participate with the CDC in the conduct of the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System and the Youth Risk Factor surveillance System.

Data for each state can be found on CDC’s website.

Detailed state data from this system is frequently available from the state’s Center for health statistics. See for example how North Carolina features this information.

Surveillance of Notifiable Conditions
Public health laws require providers to report cases of certain disorders to their state public health departments.

These include:
  • Sexually transmitted diseases and
  • Other infectious disorders—such as Tuberculosis, AIDs, Polio, and Mumps

Statistical summaries are published by CDC each week.

State Public health departments also issue periodic summaries of Notifiable conditions.
