Abstract

How are the mortality and morbidity figures in regard to tuberculosis worked out in India and how far are they reliable? These are important questions which are being asked and therefore it may be useful to review the available information on the subject, such as the existing official mortality rates and other data collected by tuberculosis workers in the country as a result of x-ray surveys and special investigations.
