Abstract

Purpose: This study aims to examine the influence of age, state, and year on gender of Tuberculosis patients using binary logit modeling. Design/Methodology/Approach: Binary logit models were computed using data sets of registered Tuberculosis patients from 2006 to 2009. Research Findings: Results suggest that males face higher risks for Tuberculosis as compared to females in all age groups, states, and years. In addition, risk variation was observed in age groups, states, and years. Research Limitations/Implications: This study is limited in its analysis to only data sets of registered Tuberculosis patients from 2006 to 2009. Originality/Value: This study contributes to a better understanding of Tuberculosis patients in Nigeria in terms of age, state, year, and gender.
