Abstract

In this issue, we review the trends in reports of notifiable diseases among NSW residents received by the NSW public health units for 2001. Readers interested in the details of notifications for specific diseases are referred to Tables 1–5 where diseases are reported by: year of onset; month of onset; rate per 100 000 and number of cases by area health service; and age group and sex. Table 6 shows the number of people with notifiable conditions who were reported to have died by the time of follow-up by their local public health unit.
