Description of Data
The Communicable Disease Surveillance Data EpiQuery module displays reported cases, crude rates, and age-adjusted rates, stratified by selected demographic (age group, sex, neighborhood poverty) and geographic characteristics (borough, United Hospital Fund neighborhood).
The BCD disease surveillance database is an electronic web-based application and database containing surveillance and epidemiologic investigation data for the >70 diseases reportable to BCD, and all outbreaks and individual cases of other diseases and conditions investigated by BCD. Because this is a live database, data are preliminary and constantly changing. Data requests from this database require a signed data use agreement reviewed by both the Health Department and the legal department of the requesters’ institutions.
