Global incidence of active TB disease (pulmonary and extrapulmonary): High-income countries — including most countries in western Europe, Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand — have the lowest rates of active tuberculosis (TB) disease, typically <10 cases per 100,000 population per year. By contrast, lower-income countries have higher rates of TB. The data to base these estimates were acquired by a combination of case notifications with expert opinion, prevalence surveys, case notifications with standard adjustment and capture–recapture methodologies. | Global Tuberculosis Report 2015, 20th edition, World Health Organization, 18, figure 2.6, Copyright (2015)
