1997 Surveillance Slides

Change in TB Cases by State
United States, 1985, 1992 and 1997

Slide 7: Change in  TB Cases by State United States, 1985, 1992 and 1997.
Slide 7. During 1985 through 1992, the top five reporting areas (New York, California, Texas, Florida, and Illinois) experienced increases in the total number of reported TB cases, whereas, during 1992 through 1997, all five states experienced substantial declines. The most dramatic increase and then decrease occurred in New York, primarily reflecting the epidemic in New York City during this period. The response to the epidemic included vigorous efforts to strengthen TB control in New York City by increasing completion of therapy rates, expanding the use of directly observed therapy, and strengthening infection control practices in institutions such as hospitals and jails.
