Communicable Disease Data

Communicable diseases are those which can be easily transmitted from one person to another.  The communicable disease section of the Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency is responsible for the keeping track of  the most common communicable diseases including; chicken pox, flu, head lice, hepatitis and tuberculosis.  These statistics are updated monthly.

The Communicable Disease Report is a listing of new cases of reportable communicable diseases that have been reported to the Community Health Agency during the previous month. Cumulative case totals to-date is included as well as 2 previous years data for comparison.  Communicable disease reporting is an ongoing process and case information changes, often day to day or week to week.  Case totals are subject to change as additional information and test results become available.  These changes will be made to prior month data and be reflected in the YTD column as well as the previous year data to make data as accurate as possible.  These changes will be made each month in an attempt to accurately reflect the scope and depth of communicable disease in our 3 counties.

Communicable Disease Comparisons

The Community Health Agency also keeps track of the number of communicable diseases reported in our area and compares them to the numbers reported throughout the entire state to identify potential risks.

Additionally, disease information is collected and compared, within each county, month by month and year to year. Comparisons for each of our three counties from the previous two years are included in the communicable disease data above. Communicable disease data more than two years old is available upon request.

We have also taken a closer look at how the counties compare to each other as well as how they compare with the state on the following diseases:

  • Aseptic Meningitis
  • Campylobacter
  • Chickenpox
  • Chlamydia
  • Foodborne
  • Giardiasis
  • Gonorrhea
  • Hepatitis C - Chronic
  • Pertussis
  • Salmonellosis
  • Shigellosis
