Review of TB surveillance data.
- All incident TB cases in the United States reported to the Centew for Disease Control and Prevention from 1980 through 1992.
- Changes in reported number of TB cases from 1985 through 1992 were analyzed by sex, race/ethnicity, age, country of birth (1986 through 1992), site of disease, geographic location, and socioeconomic status (through 1991).
From 1985 through 1992, reported number of cases was compared with expected number of cases, extrapolated from 1980 through 1984 trends, to estimate excess cases by sex, race/ethnicity, and age.
