Data and Statistics

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

7,860: number of reported TB cases in the United States in 2021 (a rate of 2.4 per 100,000 persons)

60: jurisdictions (states, cities, and U.S. 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

During the COVID-19 pandemic, reported TB disease diagnoses fell 20% in 2020 and remained 13% lower in 2021 than pre-pandemic levels. These declines may represent true reduction in TB disease, as well as missed or delayed TB disease diagnoses due to multiple factors associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

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, especially in populations at increased risk for TB disease.

For more information on global TB, visit the CDC Division of Global HIV and TB or World Health Organization (WHO) website.

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.
