    "During 2000, a total of 16,377 TB cases (5.8 cases per 100,000 population) were reported to CDC from the 50 states and the District of Columbia, representing a 7% decrease from 1999 and a 39% decrease from 1992, when the number of cases peaked during the resurgence of TB in the United States. The national TB case rate also steadily decreased during this period (Table 1). In 2000, 6% of cases were reported in children under 15 years old, 10% in persons aged 15-24 years, 34% in persons aged 25-44 years, 28% in persons aged 45-64 years, and 22% in persons aged 65 years and older (Table 2). During 1992-2000, there was a decline in both the number of cases reported in each of these age groups and the respective TB case rates." - p. 2
