Tuberculosis morbidity--United States, 1995.


During 1995, a total of 22,813 cases of tuberculosis (TB) (8.7 cases per 100,000 population) were reported to CDC from the 50 states, the District of Columbia (DC), and New York City--a 6.4% decrease from 1994 (24,361 cases [9.4 per 100,000]); an additional 262 cases were reported from Puerto Rico. This represents the third consecutive year the number of reported TB cases has decreased (Table 1), resulting in the lowest rate for reported TB cases since national surveillance began in 1953. This report summarizes TB surveillance data for 1995 and compares these data with selected data for 1986-1994, and indicates a decreased number of TB cases among U.S.-born persons and increased number among foreign-born persons.
