South Korea: Cases of Tuberculosis per 100,000 people: For that indicator, The World Bank provides data for South Korea from 2000 to 2016. The average value for South Korea during that period was 85.12 cases per 100,000 people with a minumum of 49 cases per 100,000 people in 2000 and a maximum of 99 cases per 100,000 people in 2011. See the global rankings for that indicator or use the country comparator to compare trends over time.
Definition: Incidence of tuberculosis is the estimated number of new and relapse tuberculosis cases arising in a given year, expressed as the rate per 100,000 population. All forms of TB are included, including cases in people living with HIV. Estimates for all years are recalculated as new information becomes available and techniques are refined, so they may differ from those published previously.
