  1. aIncludes exposures where the type of animal or setting was not reported
  2. bFor each disease and overall, the total number of cases reporting exposure information over the three-year period was used as the denominator to calculate proportions
  3. cCases can report multiple animal contact only subcategories. As a result proportions may not add to 100%
