Communicable Disease Surveillance Data (CDSD)

Data for diseases reported to the Bureau of Communicable Disease are available on EpiQuery: Communicable Disease Surveillance Data (CDSD). EpiQuery is an interactive, user-friendly system designed to guide users through basic data analyses.

The CDS data are derived from reports filed with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) as required by Section 11.03 of the New York City Health Code. The Bureau of Communicable Disease manages the data derived from these reports. Data are cleaned, analyzed and reported for public health surveillance. Minor variations in data presented here and that presented elsewhere (including other publications of the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene) may be due to several factors, including reporting delays, census data availability, corrections, and data-processing refinements (for example, the removal of duplicate reports).
