| Slide 2. Reported TB Cases, United States, 1982–2009. The resurgence of TB in the mid-1980s was
marked by several years of increasing case counts until its peak in 1992. Case counts began decreasing again
in 1993, and 2009 marked the seventeenth year of decline in the total number of TB cases reported in the
United States since the peak of the resurgence. From 1992 until 2002, the total number of TB cases decreased
5%–7% annually. From 2002 to 2003, however, the total number of TB cases decreased by only 1.4%. In
2009, a total of 11,545 cases were reported from the 50 states and the District of Columbia. This represents a
decline of 10.5% from 2009 and of approximately 56.7% from 1992.
