| Slide 2: Reported TB Cases, United
States, 1980-2000. The resurgence of TB in the
mid 1980s was marked by several years of slowly increasing
case counts followed by a substantial rise for several years.
The total number of TB cases peaked in 1992. Since 1992, the
total number of TB cases has decreased 5%-7% annually. 2000
marks the eighth year of decline in the total number of TB
cases reported in the US since the peak of the resurgence.
In 2000, a total of 16,377 TB cases were reported from the
50 states and the District of Columbia. This represents a
7% decrease from 1999 and a 39% decline from 1992.
