Reported TB Cases United States, 1982 – 2010

Reported TB Cases US, 1982-2010

Reported TB Cases, United States, 1982–2010 . The resurgence of TB in the mid-1980s was marked by several years of increasing case counts until its peak in 1992. Case counts began decreasing again in 1993, and 2010 marked the eighteenth year of decline in the total number of TB cases reported in the United States since the peak of the resurgence. From 1992 until 2002, the total number of TB cases decreased 5% – 7% annually. From 2002 to 2003, however, the total number of TB cases decreased by only 1.4%. From 2003–2008, the total number of TB cases decreased between 2 – 3.5% annually. In 2009, TB cases declined 10.6% from the previous year, which was an unexpectedly large decrease. In 2010, a total of 11,182 cases were reported from the 50 states and the District of Columbia (DC). This represents a decline of 3.1% from 2009 and of approximately 58.1% from 1992.
