Preface

(PDF – 478k)


Reported Tuberculosis in the United States, 2012 presents summary data for tuberculosis (TB) cases verified and counted in 2012. Report of Verified Case of Tuberculosis (RVCT) forms are submitted to the Division of Tuberculosis Elimination (DTBE), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), by 60 reporting areas (the 50 states, the District of Columbia, New York City, Puerto Rico, and seven other jurisdictions in the Pacific and Caribbean). First released in 1993, the RVCT was expanded in 2009 to collect additional information for each reported TB case in order to better monitor trends in TB and TB control.

Reported Tuberculosis in the United States, 2012 is similar to previous publications and contains an Executive Commentary, Technical Notes, seven major data sections, and appendices. The Executive Commentary includes highlights of the 2012 data, and the Technical Notes section provides information about how the data were collected and reported; these sections are included to help the reader interpret the data.

Morbidity Trend Tables present trends in the overall TB case counts and case rates for the United States and the United States Affiliated Pacific Islands by selected demographic, clinical, and genotypic characteristics. Morbidity Tables, 2012 present overall case counts and case rates for the United States and other jurisdictions by selected demographic and genotypic characteristics for the most recent year for which data are available. Morbidity Tables, 2010 present overall case counts for the United States by selected demographic and clinical characteristics for the most recent year for which data are available on certain follow-up variables that require a longer data collection period. Morbidity Tables, Reporting Areas, 2012 present TB case counts and case rates by state and by other jurisdictions with tables of selected demographic and clinical characteristics. Morbidity Tables, Reporting Areas, 2010 present data for the most recent year for which data are available on certain follow-up variables that require a longer data collection period. Morbidity Tables, Cities and Metropolitan Statistical Areas, 2012 provide TB case counts and case rates by metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs: see Technical Notes for further details) with tables of selected demographic and clinical characteristics. Surveillance Slide Set, 2012 presents figures from the annual surveillance slide set, which emphasize key recent trends in TB epidemiology in the United States. The slides with accompanying text can also be viewed and downloaded from the DTBE website.

The current Tuberculosis Case Definition for Public Health Surveillance and Recommendations for Reporting and Counting Tuberculosis Cases are provided in Appendices A and B, respectively. National Surveillance for Severe Adverse Events Associated with Treatment for Latent Tuberculosis Infection - Reporting Information is provided in Appendix C. Genotyping Background Information and Glossary is provided in Appendix D.
