Health Information: CDC Wonder Adds New Data and Features, Registration No Longer Needed

News today from the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta about the CDC WONDER Database

+ Quick overview from the FAQ:

Wide-ranging OnLine Data for Epidemiologic Research (WONDER) -- is an easy-to-use internet system that makes the information resources of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) available to public health professionals and the public at large. It provides access to a wide array of public health information.

Here are just a few highlights from the "What's New" page:

We've identified the list of WONDER system data queries on our home page, since data is what WONDER is all about. The inclusive list of CDC web resources for data is still available, click on the "Topics" tab for a categorized list, or click on the "A-Z Index" tab for an alphabetical list.

Search the entire WONDER site to the searches that already existed for the Scientific Data and Prevention Guidelines document collections. The search includes data request forms and help files along with the document collections, and should greatly enhance the ability to find the data you're looking for.

and Recently Added Data:
Disease Trends data for 1996 - last week

Mortality data from the CDC 122 Cities Mortality Reporting System as printed in Table III of the MMWR each week.
Morbidity data on provisional cases of selected national notifiable diseases, from the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS). NNDSS data reported by the 50 states, New York City, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories are collated and published weekly as numbered tables printed in the back of the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR). Cases reported by state health departments to CDC for weekly publication are provisional because of ongoing revision of information and delayed reporting.
Data are updated weekly.
