How the CDC counts H1N1 cases
Thought you (you one person reading this, you) might be interested in this Wall Street Journal blog post about how CDC counts H1N1 cases.
The accompanying print article discusses how H1N1 information is based on flawed data. Carl Bialik writes that CDC relies on "the nation's patchy surveillance system" for its data - Well, Carl, if the U.S. were to fully fund states to perform adequate surveillance, maybe we'd be able to provide better data for you! (Are you listening, Congress?)
