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

8,300: reported TB cases (provisional) in the United States in 2022 (a rate of 2.5 cases per 100,000 persons)

60: jurisdictions (states, cities, U.S. territories, and affiliated areas) that report TB data to CDC

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

TB case counts and incidence rates have steadily decreased in the United States since 1992.

Data and Statistics Resources

In 2022, 8,300 TB cases were reported in the United States, compared with 7,874 cases reported in 2021. TB incidence also increased slightly in 2022 (2.5 cases per 100,000 persons). Reported TB cases and TB incidence in the United States are returning to pre-pandemic levels, following a substantial decline in 2020, likely due to factors associated with the COVID-19 pandemic including missed or delayed diagnoses.

Timely diagnosis and treatment of both active TB disease and latent TB infection are critical steps to eliminating TB in the United States.

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, especially in populations at increased 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.
