IID-29 Reduce tuberculosis (TB)

About the Data: National

Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.

Data Source: 
National TB Surveillance System (NTBSS); Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (CDC/NCHHSTP)
Bridged-race Population Estimates; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Health Statistics and U.S. Census Bureau (CDC/NCHS and Census)
Changed Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
Yes
Measure: 
per 100,000
Baseline (Year): 
4.8 (2005)
Target: 
1.0
Target-Setting Method: 
Maintain consistency with national programs, regulations, policies, and laws.
Target-Setting Method Justification: 
The target is aligned with the National TB Indicator Project objectives. The algorithms for calculating the indicators for these objectives were standardized through consensus among stakeholder representatives from TB programs and laboratories at the State and local level. Targets were derived from recent results of programs ranked at the 90th percentile for the respective performance indicators.
Numerator: 

Number of confirmed new cases of tuberculosis reported to CDC by local health departments in all 50 States and the District of Columbia

Denominator: 

Number of persons

Comparable Healthy People 2010 Objective: 
Retained from HP2010 objective
Data Collection Frequency: 
Annual
Methodology Notes: 

    A confirmed case definition for tuberculosis is available from CDC.

    Rates are expressed as the number of cases reported each calendar year per 100,000 persons. Population denominators used in calculating TB rates were based on official census and midyear postcensal estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau. Tuberculosis case rates between 2005 to 2012 updated as of June 25, 2012, using Bridged-Race Intercensal Estimates of the Resident Population for the United States, Regions, States, and Puerto Rico: April 1, 2000 to July 1, 2010 and Annual Estimates of the Resident Population for the United States, Regions, States, and Puerto Rico: April 1, 2010 to July 1, 2012.

Revision History

Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.

Description of Changes Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
In 2013, the rates for 2005-2009 were revised using intercensal population estimates based on the 2000 and 2010 censuses instead of the postcensal estimates for the denominator. Thus, the original 2005 baseline was revised from 4.9 to 4.8. The target was not revised. In 2014, Population Estimates was added as a data source to reflect measure's population denominator. The data and target were not revised. In 2015, 2005-2012 data were revised due to reporting delays. This revision occurs annually. The baseline of the total population and target remained the same. In 2015, the denominator data source name was revised from Population Estimates to Bridged-Race Population Estimates for Census 2000 and 2010. The numerator data source, baseline estimate, target, and target-setting method remain unchanged.
