    Records of notification in cases of eight infectious diseases in the « Servei Territorial de Salut Publica » of the Province of Barcelona, Spain, between 1982 and 1986 were reviewed.

    Time from onset of symptoms to notification, time from notification to completion of data collection, and time from onset to completion of the case investigation were analyzed.

    For the period from onset to notification, the shortest mean was registered for meningococcal infection (6.31 days) and the longest was for pulmonary tuberculosis (54.79 days).
