Testing-adjusted chlamydia notification trends in New South Wales, Australia, 2000 to 2010

Journal Article


Abstract


  • INTRODUCTION: Between 2005 and 2010, Australian notification rates for chlamydia infection increased by 64% from 203 to 333 per 100 000 population. Interpreting this trend is difficult without examining rates and local patterns of testing. We examined the effect of adjusting for local testing rates on chlamydia notification trends in New South Wales (NSW), Australia from 2000 to 2010.
