The data presented in this dashboard are from the Communicable Disease Reporting and Surveillance System (CDRSS) and includes both acute and chronic hepatitis B and C.  Viral hepatitis data is also available on the NJDOH Communicable Disease Service website and on the New Jersey State Health Assessment Data website.
