|Slide 22. Primary MDR TB in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993–2008. 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 25% in 1993 to 77% in 2008 (not shown on slide). Among the U.S.-born, the percentage with primary MDR TB remained between 0.4% and 0.7% from 1998 through 2008 and was 0.6% in 2008. The percentage among foreign-
born persons has fluctuated year by year, while averaging approximately 1.4% from 1998 through 2008.
