Kirking, MD1,2*, Carla Jeffries, JD2, Sandy F. 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). Although TB cases and rates decreased among foreign-born and U.S. -born persons, foreign-born persons and racial/ethnic minorities were affected disproportionately by TB in the United States.
