Interpreting Data Charts

This assignment has multiple parts, please review each step carefully:

Step 1:

  1. Differentiate between morbidity and mortality
  2. Define morbidity rate and mortality rate.
  3. Explain what these rates mean for epidemiologists
  4. Explain what these rates mean for the general public

Step 2:
In the current issue of the MMWR, which you used for your discussion this week, click on “Notifiable Diseases and Mortality Tables.” When the document opens, note that this collection of tables represent the number of reported cases of notifiable diseases for the most current week.
In Table I (which should comprise the first two pages of the document):

  1. Select two diseases that are listed down the left side of the page – make sure there were actual cases reported on those diseases by noting a number in the second column titled “current week.”
  2. Summarize the nature of your two selected diseases uses scholarly sources (i.e. what is the disease, what are the symptoms, how does one obtain it)
  3. Explain the trend in reported cases of the two diseases (you will need to review the other columns in the chart to find this information)

  1. Find your state for the following diseases: mumps, pertussis, gonorrhea, pneumococcal disease for all ages (NOT <5), syphilis, and hepatitis B. Note that they usually list three diseases per page.
  2. Explain the trend in reported cases of each disease within your state.
  3. Compare your states’ cases with the total listed for the United States (found at the top of each page in Table II).
  4. Explain what this means to epidemiologists and the general public.
