Abstract

A community-based, cross-sectional tuberculin survey was conducted among children aged 1-9 years residing in a sample of rural and urban areas of six districts in the western zone of India. Stratified two-stage cluster sampling was adopted for selection of rural and urban clusters. A total of 48 473 children in 600 clusters underwent tuberculin testing with 1TU PPD RT23 with Tween 80; the induration was measured about 72 h after the test.
