In 2008, 83% of all reported TB cases occurred in racial and ethnic minorities (29% in Hispanics, 26% in Asians, 25% in non-Hispanic blacks or African-Americans, 1% in American Indians or Alaska Natives, and <1% in Native Hawaiians or Other Pacific Islanders), whereas 17% of cases occurred in non-Hispanic whites. Persons reporting two or more races totaled less than 1% of all cases. This is the fifth year that Hispanics have constituted the single largest percentage of TB cases among all racial/ethnic groups and the first year that Asians have surpassed non-Hispanic blacks or African Americans as the second largest percentage of TB cases among all racial/ethnic groups.
