Slide 10: Reported TB Cases by Race/Ethnicity, United States, 2011

Slide 10. Reported TB Cases by Race/Ethnicity, United States, 2011. In 2011, 84% of all reported TB cases occurred in racial and ethnic minorities (29% in Hispanics, 30% in Asians, 23% in non-Hispanic blacks or African-Americans, 1% in American Indians or Alaska Natives, and 1% in Native Hawaiians or Other Pacific Islanders), whereas 16% of cases occurred in non-Hispanic whites. Persons reporting two or more races totaled less than 1% of all cases. This is the first year that Asians have constituted the single largest percentage of TB cases among all racial/ethnic groups; Hispanics had previously held the largest TB percentage for seven years. Non-Hispanic blacks or African Americans have remained the third largest racial/ethnic group for four years now.
