About the Data
Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
Number of state public health laboratories (total 52 including the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and New York City, and excluding Hawaii) sending weekly data uploads to the RabID system
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. RabID 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.
