Slide 11: Number of TB Cases in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993-2011.

Slide 11. Number of TB Cases in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993–2011. This graph plots the number of U.S.-born vs. foreign-born persons reported with TB each year, from 1993 through 2011. It illustrates the increase in the percentage of cases occurring in foreign-born persons during this period, from 29% in 1993 to 62% in 2011. Overall, the number of cases in foreign-born persons remained virtually level, with approxi­mately 7,000–8,000 cases each year before 2009, until 2009 when the number dropped to 6,854. That decreasing trend continued in 2011 with the number of foreign-born cases dropping to 6,510. The number in U.S.-born persons decreased from more than 17,000 in 1993 to 3,981 in 2011.
