Abstract

Data from a Tuberculosis Prevalence Survey in 62 villages of Tumkur District, South India, have been analysed to study infection and disease in households divided into 3 types viz., (i) Bacillary case households i.e., those with one or more bacillary cases. (ii) X-ray case households, i.e., households with at least one radiologically active case, but no bacillary case. (iii) Non-case households, i.e., households without either a bacillary or an X-ray case.
