In this issue, we review the trends in reports of notifiable diseases among NSW residents received by the NSW public health units in 2005. Tables 1–5 report specific diseases by: year of onset, month of onset, area health service, and age group and sex. To assist with characterising the disease epidemiology, figures for area health services have been further divided into the geographical region covered by their component public health unit offices. Table 6 shows the number of people with notifiable conditions who were reported to have died at the time of follow-up by their local public health unit.
