# I M P O R T A N T

The CDC migrated to a new non-Flash portal and back-end APIs changed. This is a complete reimagining of the package and --- as such --- all your code is going to break. Please use GitHub issues to identify previous API functionality you would like ported over. There's a [release candidate for 0.5.2]( which uses the old API but it likely to break in the near future given the changes to the hidden API. You can do what with `devtools::install_github("hrbrmstr/cdcfluview", ref="58c172b")`.

All folks providing feedback, code or suggestions will be added to the DESCRIPTION file. Please include how you would prefer to be cited in any issues you file.

If there's a particular data set from that you want and that isn't in the package, please file it as an issue and be as specific as you can (screen shot if possible).

# :mask: cdcfluview

Retrieve U.S. Flu Season Data from the CDC FluView Portal

## Description

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) maintains a portal <> for accessing state, regional and national influenza statistics as well as Mortality Surveillance Data. The Flash interface makes it difficult and time-consuming to select and retrieve influenza data. This package provides functions to access the data provided by the portal's underlying API.

## What's Inside The Tin

The following functions are implemented:

- `agd_ipt`: Age Group Distribution of Influenza Positive Tests Reported by Public Health Laboratories
- `cdcfluview`: Tools to Work with the 'CDC' 'FluView' 'API'
- `cdc_coverage_map`: Retrieve CDC U.S. Coverage Map
- `geographic_spread`: State and Territorial Epidemiologists Reports of Geographic Spread of Influenza
- `hospitalizations`: Laboratory-Confirmed Influenza Hospitalizations
- `ilinet`: Retrieve ILINet Surveillance Data
- `ili_weekly_activity_indicators`: Retrieve weekly state-level ILI indicators per-state for a given season
- `pi_mortality`: Pneumonia and Influenza Mortality Surveillance
- `state_data_providers`: Retrieve metadat about U.S. State CDC Provider Data
- `surveillance_areas`: Retrieve a list of valid sub-regions for each surveillance area.
- `who_nrevss`: Retrieve WHO/NREVSS Surveillance Data

The following data sets are included:

- `hhs_regions` HHS Region Table (a data frame with 59 rows and 4 variables)
- `census_regions` Census Region Table (a data frame with 51 rows and 2 variables)
