Slide 24. Primary MDR TB in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993–2012

Slide 24. Primary MDR TB in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993–2012. This graph highlights primary MDR TB in U.S.-born versus foreign-born persons. The percentage with primary MDR TB has declined among both groups since 1993, although the decline in the U.S.-born has been greater. As a result, the proportion of primary MDR TB cases in the US that are attributed to foreign-born persons increased from approximately 25% in 1993 to 86% in 2012 (not shown on slide). Among the U.S.-born, the percentage with primary MDR TB has been less than 1% since 1997 and was 0.4% in 2011. The percentage among foreign-born persons has fluctuated year by year, although it has remained between 1.2 and 1.8% since 1995. In 2012, the percentage of primary MDR TB among foreign-born persons was 1.4%
