Epidemiology of TB in Oregon

Oregon Tuberculosis Data

In 2022, 73 cases of TB disease were reported in Oregon, corresponding to an incidence rate of 1.7 cases for every 100,000 Oregon residents. This rate is within the expected range and is unchanged compared to pre-COVID-19 pandemic rates.

Nationwide, in 2022 TB cases increased to a rate of 2.5 cases for every 100,000 U.S. residents. This slight increase in incidence is closer to expected pre-pandemic rates compared to the rate seen in 2020 and 2021. Oregon remains a medium-incidence state for TB disease and remains below the national case rate.

In 2022, no multi-drug resistant TB was diagnosed in Oregon. Two children under the age of 14 were treated for TB disease and there was one person (1/4%) co-infected with TB and HIV.
