Reported tuberculosis in the United States, 2017
Details:
  • Description:
    Reported Tuberculosis in the United States, 2017, presents summary data for tuberculosis (TB) cases verified and counted during 2017. Report of Verified Case of TB (RVCT) forms are submitted to the Division of TB Elimination (DTBE), National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Atlanta, Georgia, by 60 reporting areas (the 50 states, the District of Columbia, New York City, Puerto Rico, and 7 other U.S.-affiliated jurisdictions in the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea).

    Reported Tuberculosis in the United States, 2017, is similar to previous publications and contains an Executive Commentary, Technical Notes, seven major data sections, and appendices. The Executive Commentary includes highlights of the 2017 data, and the Technical Notes section provides information about how the data were collected and reported; these two sections are included to help the reader interpret the data.

    Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial disease caused by infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. Since 1953, the National TB Surveillance System (NTSS) has collected information on each newly reported case of TB disease in the United States. In addition to the 50 United States and the District of Columbia (DC), CDC accepts TB case reports from five U.S. territories (American Samoa, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) and three sovereign nations that have signed compacts of free association with the United States (Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of the Marshall Islands, and Republic of Palau); however, the information presented in this commentary is based on the case reports from the 50 states and DC, except where otherwise specified. CDC maintains TB surveillance data in an electronic database for all cases reported since 1993; reporting areas may update this information at any time. Small variations in historical data included in this report compared with previous reports are attributed to these updates. This annual summary contains information on TB cases reported to CDC during 1993–2017 by year that the reporting jurisdiction counted the case.
