Primary MDR TB in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born
United States, 1993–2004
| Slide 22. Primary MDR TB in U.S.-born
vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993–2004.
This graph highlights primary MDR TB in U.S.-born versus foreign-born
persons. The percentage with primary MDR TB has declined
among both groups, 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
26% in 1993 to approximately 75% each year during 1999–2004.
Among the U.S.-born, the percentage with MDR TB has remained
between 0.6% and 0.7% since 1998. The percentage among foreign-born
persons has fluctuated year by year, while averaging approximately
1.4% from 1998 through 2004.
