This line graph shows reported TB cases in the United States from 1982 to 2011. 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 2011 marks the nineteenth year of declines in the total number of TB cases reported in the U.S. since the peak of the resurgence.
