        Reported with TB, United States, 2006
Slide 17. Countries of Birth of Foreign-born Persons Reported with TB, United States, 2006. This slide shows the overall distribution of the countries of birth of foreign-born persons reported with TB in 2006, with the top seven highlighted. The list of countries has remained relatively constant since 1986, when information on country of birth was first reported by all areas submitting reports to CDC. However, for 2006, Guatemala replaced South Korea in the list of countries contributing the highest percentages of foreign-born patients. The seven top countries accounted for 62% of the total, with Mexico accounting for 25%; the Philippines, 11%; Viet Nam, 8%; India, 7%; China, 5%; Haiti, 3%; and Guatemala, 3%. Persons from more than 135 other countries each accounted for 2% or less of the total, but altogether accounted for 38% of foreign-born persons reported with TB.
