Data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that tuberculosis (TB) rates are several times higher among certain racial/ethnic minorities than among whites
TB rates are 7 times higher for Hispanics, 8 times higher for blacks, and 25 times higher for Asians than for whites. "Asians now surpass Hispanics as the racial/ethnic group with the largest number of TB cases," states a CDC news release. In addition, the TB rate for foreign-born persons was 12 times higher than that for those born in the United States.
