Slide 11: Countries of Birth for Foreign-born Persons Reported with TB, United States, 1999.  This slide provides the overall distribution of countries of birth for foreign-born persons reported with TB. The countries have remained relatively constant since 1986, when information on country of birth was added to the TB case report submitted to CDC. Seven countries account for nearly 2/3 of the total, with persons from Mexico accounting for nearly 1/4 and persons from the Philippines and Vietnam each accounting for approximately 10%. Persons from India, China, Haiti, and South Korea each account for approximately 5%, and more than 140 other countries each account for 2% or less of the total.
