        Persons, United States, 1993-2006
Slide 22. Primary MDR TB in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993–2006. This graph highlights primary MDR TB in U.S.-born versus foreign-born persons. The percentage with primary MDR TB has declined among both groups, although the decline in the U.S.-born has been greater. As a result, the proportion of primary MDR TB cases reported in foreign-born persons increased from approximately 26% of all MDR TB cases in 1993 to approximately 73% of all MDR TB cases in 1999, and continued at this proportion through 2006 (not shown on slide). Among the U.S.-born, the percentage with MDR TB remained between 0.5% and 0.7% from 1998 through 2004 and dropped to 0.4% in 2006. The percentage among foreign-born persons has fluctuated year by year, while averaging approximately 1.4% from 1998 through 2006.
