U.S. Healthcare Associated Infections ( HAIs ) using CDC public data

I just finished my @CDCgov data story about Healthcare Associated Infections ( #HAIs ) using D3. These infections are particularly nasty as they are antibiotic-resistant. I’ve created an interactive map of the U.S. with the total number of infections per state and the rate of infection per 1000 people for the latest available year, 2014. If CDC funding continues to be cut, it is unknown when the next HAI updates will be made.
