| Slide 4. TB Case Rates, United States, 2007.
This map shows TB rates for 2007. Twenty-six states had a rate of
less than or equal to 3.5 TB cases per 100,000, the interim goal for
the year 2000 established by the Advisory Council for the
Elimination of Tuberculosis. This group of states has remained
fairly constant over the last decade; five states (CT, MI, NM, OR,
and PA) joined the group in 2000, one state (MO) joined the group in
2001 (also in 1998 for one year only), and one state (KY) joined the
group in 2003. Fifteen states and the District of Columbia (DC)
reported a rate above the 2007 national average of 4.4 cases per
100,000: AK, AZ, CA, FL, GA, HI, LA, MD, MN, MS, NJ, NY, SC, TX, and
WA. These 15 states and DC accounted for 67% of the national total
and experienced substantial overall decreases in cases and rates
from 1992 through 2007.
