National Data

In 2022, the United States reported 8,331 TB cases, representing a 5.9% increase in case count compared with 2021. The incidence rate was 2.5 cases per 100,000 persons, a 5.5% increase in incidence rate compared with 2021.

After declining substantially in 2020, TB cases rose in 2021 and 2022, but remain lower compared with 2019. TB cases appear to be gradually returning to prepandemic levels but concerns about pandemic-related disruptions to public health persist.

The National Vital Statistics System collects information on reported TB disease-related deaths and releases data after a 1-year lag.

There were 602 TB-related deaths (0.2 deaths per 100,000 persons) reported in 2021, the most recent year for which data are available.
