This line graph shows the number of reported TB cases in the United States between 1982 and 2012. There was a resurgence of TB in the mid-1980s with several years of increasing case counts until its peak in 1992. In 1993, case counts began decreasing again. Since the peak, 2012 marks the 20th year of decline in the total number of TB cases reported in the U.S.
