United States, 1993–2006


Slide 16: TB Case Rates in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born 
          Persons, United States, 1993-2006
Slide 16. TB Case Rates in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993–2006. 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.
