Oregon Tuberculosis Data

In 2023, 78 cases of TB disease were reported in Oregon, corresponding to an incidence rate of 1.8 cases for every 100,000 Oregon residents. This rate is a 5.9% increase over 2022 and is part of a ten-year trend of essentially stable TB disease rates in the state. Oregon remains a medium-incidence state for TB disease and remains below the national case rate. 

Nationwide, the TB rate is on a notable upward trend. 2023 was the 3rd consecutive year of increase with a case count of 9,615 and a rate of 2.9 cases/100,000 population. This rate is a 15% increase over the 2022 rate of 2.5 cases/100,000 residents. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the TB incidence rate is up 25% nationwide. Please visit the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report for complete US data for 2023.
