Data and Statistics

Tuberculosis (TB) in the United States by the numbers:

8,916: number of reported TB cases in the United States in 2019 (a rate of 2.7 per 100,000 persons)

60: jurisdictions (states, cities, and US territories) in the United States that report TB data to the CDC

Up to 13 million: estimated number of people in the United States living with latent TB infection

The United States continues to have one of the lowest TB case rates in the world, and the 2019 case count represents the lowest number of TB cases on record. Still, too many people suffer from TB disease and our progress is too slow to eliminate TB in this century.

Data and Statistics Resources

Ending TB will require a dual approach of maintaining and strengthening current TB control priorities, while increasing efforts to identify and treat latent TB infection in populations at risk for TB disease.

TB data from countries with compacts of free association with the United States (Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of the Marshall Islands, and Republic of Palau) can be found in the full report.
