Methodology Notes

RabID is enhanced surveillance via a new comprehensive GIS-based real-time system that provides essential information on rabies occurrence for states and partnering organizations needed for timely prevention and control and has integrated data sharing among local, state, and federal agencies for strategic responses to outbreaks.

Data are collected routinely through the Public Health Laboratory Information System (PHLIS) or at the end of year when data is sent directly from states that have not implemented electronic messaging.
