|Slide 16. TB Case Rates in U.S.-born vs.
Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993—2005.
This is the same as Slide 15, but the rates are presented
on a logarithmic scale to better illustrate 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 foreign-born during this period.
