Slide 9: TB Case Rates by Age Group and 	Race/Ethnicity, United States, 2009

Slide 9. TB Case Rates by Age Group and Race/Ethnicity* United States, 2009. This slide presents TB rates in 2009 by age group and race/ethnicity. Risk increased with age across racial and ethnic groups, and rates were consistently higher in minority racial and ethnic groups than in non-Hispanic whites. Rates were the highest in Asians and Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders, particularly in adult age groups. The impact of foreign birth is a consideration in interpreting rate variations by race/ethnicity. For example, 94% of cases in the Asian group occurred in foreign-born persons, compared with 73% of cases in Hispanics and 32% of cases in non-Hispanic blacks or African-Americans. Persons reporting two or more races totaled less than 1% of all cases.

* All races are non-Hispanic. Persons reporting two or more races accounted for less than 1% of all cases.
