2003 Surveillance Slides

TB Case Rates in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons

United States, 1993-2003


Slide 16: TB Case Rates in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born 
          Persons, United States, 1993-2003
Slide 16: TB Case Rates in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993-2003. This is the same as Slide 15 but the rates are presented on a logarithmic scale to provide a better comparison of the trend in TB rates among the U.S.-born and foreign-born. The lines show a greater rate of decline among the U.S.-born compared with the decline for the foreign-born during the past decade.
