Slide 4: TB Case Rates, United States, 2009
Slide 4. TB Case Rates, United States, 2009. This map shows TB rates for 2009. Thirty-four 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. In 2009, five more states (AZ, AR, OK, RI and WA) joined the group but one state (MA) left the group. In 2009, four more states (NC, TN, VA, IL, MN) joined the group but one state (WA) left the group. Eleven states and the District of Columbia (DC) reported a rate above the 2009 national average of 3.8 cases per 100,000: AK, CA, NV, FL, GA, HI, LA, MS, NJ, NY, and TX. These eleven states and DC accounted for 63% of the national total and experienced substantial overall decreases in cases and rates from 1992 through 2009.
