HEALTH STATUS - Tuberculosis by County
The TB rate is generally higher for Honolulu than for the other counties, except in 2009 when Kaua'i and Maui both surpassed Honolulu. In 2012, Hawai'i reported 7 cases of TB (4 cases per 100,000). Honolulu reported 96 cases of TB (10 cases per 100,000 population) accounting for 82 percent of the state's TB morbidity.  Kaua'i reported 1 case of TB (1 case per 100,000 population). Maui reported 13 cases of TB (8 cases per 100,000 population). Although the TB rates have declined since 1992, the TB incidence rate for Hawaii counties is well above the Healthy People 2010 Objective of one case per 100,000 population and above the national TB rate of 3.4 per 100,000.1
