TB Rates in the United States, 1982-2017

This line graph shows the TB rates in the United States between 1982 and 2017. There was a resurgence of TB in the mid-1980s with several years of increasing case counts until its peak in 1992. In 1993, case counts began decreasing again. While overall rates have declined since the peak, the decline has slowed significantly from 2012-2017. This slow progress threatens the realization of TB elimination in this century.
