Slide 9: TB Case Rates by Age Group and Race/Ethnicity, United States, 2011

Slide 9. TB Case Rates by Age Group and Race/Ethnicity, United States, 2011. This slide presents TB rates in 2011 by age group and race/ethnicity. After infancy (age under 5), risk typically increased with age across all racial and ethnic groups. 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, 96% of cases in the Asian group occurred in foreign-born persons, compared with 74% of cases in Hispan­ics and 36% of cases in non-Hispanic blacks or African-Americans. Persons reporting two or more races totaled less than 1% of all cases.
