Primary MDR TB in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons,

United States, 1993-2002


Slide 21: Primary MDR TB in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born 
        Persons, United States, 1993-2002
Slide 21: Primary MDR TB in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993-2002. This graph highlights primary MDR TB in U.S.-born versus foreign-born persons. Both groups have seen decreases in the percentage of cases with primary MDR TB, although the decline in the U.S.-born has been greater. As a result, the proportion of primary MDR TB cases reported in foreign-born persons increased from approximately 25% in 1993 to 70% each year during 1999-2002. In 2002, for the first time since data on drug resistance has been collected by the national system, the percentage of U.S.-born persons with MDR TB increased, from 0.6% in 2001 to 0.8% in 2002.
