2012 Surveillance Slides
Slide 9. TB Case Rates by Age Group and Sex, United States, 2012. This slide graphs the TB rates in 2012 by age group and sex. It shows that rates tended to increase with age, ranging from a low of less than 1 per 100,000 in children aged 5 - 14 to a high of 7.3 per 100,000 in men 65 years and older. As age increased, the case rate in men increased faster than women; the rates in men 45 years and older were approximately more than twice those in same-age women.
