2007 Surveillance Slides

Slide 1 (title slide): Tuberculosis in the United States: National Tuberculosis Surveillance System, Highlights from 2007
Slide 1 (title slide). Tuberculosis in the United States—National Tuberculosis Surveillance System, High-lights from 2007. This slide set was prepared by the Division of Tuberculosis Elimination, Centers for Dis-ease Control and Prevention (CDC), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). It provides trends for the recent past and highlights from data collected through the National Tuberculosis Surveillance System for 2007. Since 1953, through the cooperation of state and local health departments, CDC has collected infor-mation on the newly reported cases of tuberculosis (TB) disease in the United States. The data presented here were primarily collected via the expanded TB case report introduced in 1993. Currently, each individual TB case report (Report of Verified Case of Tuberculosis, or RVCT) is submitted electronically to CDC. The data for this slide set are based on updates received by CDC as of April 23, 2008. All case counts and rates for years 1993–2006 have been updated.
