number per million inhabitants



From the 5.2 million deaths reported in the European Union (EU) in 2015, 4 400 were due to tuberculosis. Men (3 000 deaths) were more affected than women (1 400 deaths). 43% of these deaths concerned people aged less than 65.

However, for a relevant country comparison, these absolute numbers need to be adjusted to the size and structure of the population.
