Epidemiology of TB in Oregon

Oregon Tuberculosis Data

During 2016, 70 cases of TB disease were identified in Oregon, corresponding to 1.7 cases of disease for every 100,000 Oregon residents. This represents a decrease from 76 cases (1.9 cases of disease for every 100,000 Oregon residents) in 2015.

In 2016, 14% of tested isolates were resistant to isoniazid, a primary first-line TB drug. There was one case reported in Oregon of multi-drug resistant TB (TB that is resistant to isoniazid and rifampin) in 2016.

The national rate of TB disease is higher than Oregon's rate. In 2016, the United States TB rate was 2.9 per 100,000 United States residents.
