TB Case Rates
United States, 2001

Tuberculosis in the United States
Slide 4: TB Case Rates, United States, 2001. This map shows TB case rates for 2001. Twenty-three 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; five states (CT, MI, NM, OR, and PA) joined the group in 2000 and one state (MO) joined the group in 2001 (also in 1998 for one year only). States with a case rate above the national average include the seven states that reported at least 500 cases in 2001: CA, FL, GA, IL, NJ, NY, and TX. These seven states accounted for 60% of the national total and have experienced substantial overall decreases in cases and case rates since 1992.
