BMC PUBLIC HEALTH 21/09/20 Spatial distribution of tuberculosis incidence in Los Angeles County. The tuberculosis average annual incidence in Los Angeles County 2005–2011 was 7.2 per 100,000 person-years; the rate among U.S.
-born persons was 2.3 per 100,000 in contrast to the rate among non-US-born persons which was occurring among 15.8 per 100,000 . The map for crude incidence among all residents shows higher incidence in central areas of the county and lower incidence in outer areas (Fig. 1a). For reference, the California and U.S. CDC - MARS 2020 - US Tuberculosis Rates among Persons Born Outside the United States Compared with Rates in Their Countries of Birth, 2012–2016.

Most cases occurred among non–US-born persons and were attributed to progression of remotely acquired latent TB infection (LTBI) rather than recent transmission within the preceding 2 years (2). US law requires non–US-born persons seeking lawful permanent residency in the United States and refugees resettling in the United States to undergo a medical examination, including screening for TB. We analyzed data from the US National TB Surveillance System (NTSS) for TB cases reported during 2012–2016 for persons born outside the United States.

Price2, Robert Pratt2 (Author affiliations at end of text) In 2014, a total of 9,412 new tuberculosis (TB) cases were reported in the United States, with an incidence rate of 3.0* cases per 100,000 persons, a decrease of 2.2% from 2013 (1). Although overall numbers of TB cases and rates continue to decline, the percentage decrease in rate is the smallest decrease in over a decade (1). Health departments in the 50 states and the District of Columbia (DC) electronically report to CDC verified TB cases that meet the CDC and Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists case definition for TB.§ Reports include the patient's self-reported race, ethnicity (i.e., Hispanic or non-Hispanic), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) status, information about diagnosis and treatment, and drug-susceptibility test results for Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates.

This report summarizes provisional 2010 data from the National TB Surveillance System and describes trends since 1993. Despite an average decline in TB rates of 3.8% per year during 2000--2008, a record decline of 11.4% in 2009 (2), and the 2010 decline of 3.9%, the national goal of TB elimination (defined as <0.1 case per 100,000 population) by 2010 was not met (3).

November 26, 2010 / 59(46);1509-1513 Worldwide, tuberculosis (TB) incidence increased from 125 cases per 100,000 population in 1990 to 142 cases per 100,000 population in 2004, primarily because of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic (1). Persons with HIV are at increased risk for TB disease, and those with TB have a high risk for death. This is documented most clearly in resource-limited settings, where limited access to antiretroviral therapy (ART) and other health-care services contribute to the elevated mortality (1). Since 1993, all cases of TB diagnosed in the United States have been reported to CDC and entered into the National TB Surveillance System (NTSS), a comprehensive database that contains demographic, clinical, and outcome data.
