dc.description.abstractThis article presents a descriptive epidemiological study of all outbreaks reported in Catalonia in 2012 and 2013. All outbreaks notified at the Epidemiological Surveillance Network of Catalonia are subject to full investigation, which forms the basis to guide preventing measures to prevent either the occurrence of other related cases or the emergence of similar episodes in the future. Different phases of each outbreak investigation are collected in a final report. The information source for the study is constituted by the reports prepared by the Epidemiological Surveillance Territorial Services on research conducted in each of the reported outbreaks. The total number of outbreaks reported during the study period was 511 in 2012, and 538 outbreaks in 2013. The article presents the overall frequency of outbreaks by type, burden of hospitalization and mortality. Individually, for each outbreak it shows the most relevant data. As regards food-borne outbreaks, their distribution is shown in tables according to different variables. Investigation of each outbreak is essential in order to adopt suitable and specific measures in every situation. Moreover, the global and evolutionary study of all investigated outbreaks in a territory is a fundamental tool to guide policies to reduce health, social and economical impact.
