The reporting time frame used for the Weekly Morbidity Statistics Report is a based on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) weeks.
This report is shared in the form of an Excel file, with eight separate sheets, and is produced on a weekly basis to help track select reportable diseases and conditions across Florida. The first sheet includes a table of state-level statistics on the number of cases of reportable diseases and conditions while the next six sheets include the same table by region. The last sheet includes a map of the regions used for these tables (though each regional sheet also has a small map).
Data presented here are from Merlin, Florida's web-based reportable disease surveillance system. Data in these tables are aggregated by the date the case was reported to the Bureau of Epidemiology, Florida Department of Health. Cases are assigned to Florida counties based on the county of residence at the time of the disease identification, regardless of where they became ill or were hospitalized, diagnosed, or exposed. Disease reporting is an ongoing process. Counts displayed are preliminary and will fluctuate over time as case reports undergo further investigation and validation. Counts include confirmed and probable cases. Counts presented in these tables may differ from counts presented in other tables or reports, depending on the criteria used. Changes in case definitions can result in dramatic changes in case counts. Please see the Florida Surveillance Case Definitions for more information on case definition changes.
