The survey also examined health behavior and TB symptoms.  The data were gathered through exams at mobile units and in-person interviews. Participants underwent chest x-rays. If the results of the x-rays or the interview showed suspected TB symptoms, then two sputum samples were taken. The sample size for this survey was 37,417 individuals aged 15 years and older.
