Slide 11. Number of TB Cases in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993–2006. This graph plots the number of U.S.-born vs. foreign-born persons reported with TB each year, from 1993 through 2006. It illustrates the increase in the percentage of cases occurring in foreign-born persons during this period, from 29% in 1993 to 57% in 2006. Overall, the number of cases in foreign-born persons remained virtually level, with approximately 7,000–8,000 cases each year, whereas the number in U.S.-born persons decreased from more than 17,000 in 1993 to less than 6,000 in 2006.
