Tuberculosis in the United States: National Surveillance System
Highlights from 2001

Tuberculosis in the United States
Slide 1 (title slide): Tuberculosis in the United States: National Surveillance System, Highlights from 2001. This slide set is from the Division of Tuberculosis Elimination, National Center for HIV, STD, and TB Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and provides highlights from the data collected through the national TB surveillance system for 2001. Since 1953, through the cooperation of state and local health departments, CDC has collected information on the numbers of reported TB cases in the United States. The data presented here were primarily collected via the expanded TB case report introduced in 1993. Currently, each individual TB case report (Report of Verified Case of Tuberculosis, or RVCT) is submitted electronically via the Tuberculosis Information Management System (TIMS), a comprehensive CDC software system for TB surveillance, patient management, and program evaluation.
