Data and Statistics

TB in the United States by the numbers:

9,025: number of reported cases of TB in the United States in 2018 (a rate of 2.8 cases 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

Reaching the goal of TB elimination in the United States requires maintaining and strengthening current TB control priorities while increasing efforts to identify and treat latent TB infection among high-risk populations.
