Oregon Tuberculosis Data
Incidence of TB disease in Oregon generally has been declining over the past decade.
In 2012, 61 cases of TB were verified in Oregon, for a rate of 1.6 cases per 100,000 residents. This is a decrease from 2011, when 74 TB cases were reported. The national TB disease rate is usually higher than Oregon’s rate; in 2012 the national rate was 3.2 cases per 100,000 residents.
Oregon TB disease incidence remains higher in foreign-born than US-born residents. In 2012, 74% of TB cases were among foreign-born residents.
In 2012, 8.3% of isolates tested were resistant to INH (a primary first-line TB drug). One case of multi-drug resistant TB (MDR TB, or TB that is resistant to at least both INH and rifampin) was reported in Oregon in 2012.
