Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The objective of this study was to estimate the true incidence of acute cases of hepatitis B (HB) in Hawaii in 1993 and thus determine the sensitivity of reporting to the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH). The study found that the relatively low HB incidence rate of 1.6 per 100,000 reported in Hawaii in 1992 is probably, at least in part, due to underreporting by laboratories and to reporting requirements that are inadequate for accurate classification of acute cases.
