This document contains figures for the number of cases of Shigella in England and Wales from 1992 to 2013.

Reports for 2010 to 2015 are available.

In 2014, PHE upgraded the laboratory reporting system so direct comparisons between the data reported for 2000 to 2012, which used the previous system, and the more recent data reports may require cautious interpretation.
