2000 Surveillance Slides

TB Case Rates, 2000

Slide 4: TB Case Rates, 2000
Slide 4: TB Case Rates, 2000. This map shows TB case rates for 2000. Twenty-two states had a case rate of less than or equal to 3.5 TB cases per 100,000, the interim goal for the year 2000 established by the Advisory Council for the Elimination of Tuberculosis. This group of states has remained fairly constant over the last decade, although five states joined the group in 2000 (CT, MI, NM, OR, PA). States with a case rate above the national average include the seven states that reported at least 500 cases in 2000: CA, TX, IL, GA, FL, NY, and NJ. These seven states accounted for nearly 60% of the national total and have experienced substantial overall decreases in cases and case rates since 1992.
