CDC: Public Tool for HIV/STI, Viral Hepatitis, & TB Surveillance Data

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched an updated tool that allows public access to HIV, viral hepatitis, STD, and TB surveillance data and the ability to visualize the data in the form of maps, charts, and tables. Developed by the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), AtlasPlus is an enhanced version of NCHHSTP’s 2012 Atlas. By accessing AtlasPlus, users have access to data from 2000-2015 for most indicators. In addition, with this tool, users can create:

  • Maps at the state- or county-level;
  • Charts (e.g., line graphs by year; pie charts for sex; bar charts for age, race/ethnicity, transmission category (HIV), country of birth (TB); bar charts for state and county);
  • Tables that contrast indicators from multiple states or counties by age, race/ethnicity, sex, or transmission category (HIV diagnoses); and,
  • Two side-by-side maps or charts.
