Geographical Comparison

This page is focused on comparing between countries and/or regions. In the top section, compare multiple countries over time for a single indicator. In the second section, you can compare multiple regions over time for a single indicator. In both cases, use the filters to set up your visualization. For the first section, please select either specific countries from the list or a region, but not both. Once you have hit "Apply", you can then toggle between a chart or table display of the data. Use the Icon for chart menumenu at the top right of the generated charts to print the chart or download it as an image, PDF, or CSV.

How to Use This Section

The page above enables you to generate your own charts and tables of TB data by entering values in the filters and clicking “Apply”. To query specific variables (which are a single, non-calculated number written in the format: variable_name (Dataset), just begin typing the variable name in the Indicators filter and then select it when it appears in the select list. In this same select list, you can also query PBMEF indicators, which are written as a whole phrase (such as TB Case Notification Rate (CNR)) and could be calculated using WHO Global TB Database (GTBD) variables. For example, TB Case Detection Rate or TB Treatment Coverage is calculated as (c_newinc / e_inc_num) * 100.

You can familiarize yourself with the indicators and variables, as well as how they relate to each other using the filters immediately below and clicking “Apply”. You will be presented with a table where each row presents a GTBD variable, its definition, a link to download the dataset it belongs to, its PBMEF technical area, and links to the PBMEF indicators that rely on this variable.
