PANTOJA-ROJAS, Liliana María  y  ROA-VARGAS, Edna Margarita. Factors related to the diagnosis of tuberculosis by Chi-square test for Bogota (Colombia). Ing. Ind. [online]. 2012, vol.33, n.2, pp.112-125. ISSN 1815-5936.

In the light of the "Strategic Plan Colombia free of Tuberculosis 2006-2015", relevant factors were identified, such as demographic, environmental and social factors, that affect the conditions of transmission of tuberculosis. The data obtained from the Public Health Surveillance System (SIVIGILA) of Bogota city, were analyzed by the construction of contingency tables and the association of qualitative variables, using the chi-square test; in order to define an early diagnosis of tuberculosis and a timely initiation of the treatment, since this is one of the most infectious diseases in the world and has emerged, especially, in developing countries. The attention of this disease must be a high priority for Bogota city in Colombia, taking into account that it receives the greatest number of people per shift conditions, search of job opportunities and better living conditions, among others.

Palabras clave : chi-square test; contingency tables; tuberculosis; SIVIGILA.
