The annual bovine TB surveillance reports are commissioned by Defra and the devolved administrations. They provide a comprehensive account of the current descriptive epidemiology of bovine TB in cattle in Great Britain.
In the GB report, the figures for the most recent year are analysed by country (England, Scotland and Wales) and put in context of historical trends of the disease. The report for England includes more detailed analyses by risk area and by county.
The reports are based on the same data source used for the national statistics on TB in cattle in GB. However, because of differences in how the data is prepared for each publication, there are small discrepancies between some of the analysis in the publications. These are explained in the reports.
