TB Case Rates

United States, 2003

Slide 4: TB Case Rates, United States, 2003
Slide 4: TB Case Rates, United States, 2003.  This map shows TB rates for 2003.  Twenty-four states had a 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, one state (MO) joined the group in 2001 (also in 1998 for one year only), one state (KY) joined the group in 2003. States with a rate above the 2003 national average of 5.1 cases per 100,000 include the seven states that reported at least 400 cases in 2003:  CA, FL, GA, IL, NJ, NY, and TX.  These seven states accounted for 61% of the national total and have experienced substantial overall decreases in cases and rates from 1992-2002.  In 2003, however, CA, TX, and NY reported more cases than in 2002.
