Reported tuberculosis in the United States, 1998

  • Description:
    This publication, Reported Tuberculosis in the United States, 1998, presents summary data for TB cases reported to DTBE during 1998. It is similar to previous publications (page 5, #19) and contains five major sections. First, overall TB case counts and case rates with selected demographic characteristics are presented for the 50 states, New York City, and the District of Columbia. Second, TB case counts and case rates are presented by state with tables of selected demographic and clinical characteristics. In the third section, data collected as part of the expanded system (e.g., initial drug resistance, HIV status) are presented by reporting area. The fourth section provides TB case counts and case rates by metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs: see Technical Notes for further details) with tables of selected demographic and clinical characteristics. Finally, the fifth section is a collection of figures, including some data not presented in tabular format.

    This is the second year several new tables (Tables 10,11,26) and figures (Figures 8, 9,11) have been incorporated. Tables 10 and 11 present the country of origin and the duration of residence in the United States by state, for cases among foreign-bom persons. Figures 8 and 9 present the number and percentage of the overall national total, by year, for cases among U.S.-bom and foreign-bom persons, respectively. Table 26 is the most recent addition to the section presenting data collected as part of the expanded system. This table provides estimates of completion of TB therapy (COT) rates by reporting area (see Technical Notes for further details). Figure 11 presents a U.S. map showing isoniazid resistance among cases without a-history of previous TB. In addition, for the second year, Tables 12,13, and 29 include all miliary cases under the classification of both pulmonary and extrapulmonary disease rather than the classification of extrapulmonary as was done in annual summaries prior to 1997.
