Age-specific ratios and temporal trend of TB notification rates. Age disparities of TB burden were evaluated by (a) adult-child and (b) elder-child ratios of the notification rates, and the temporal trend (c) was summarised by the proportion of change in the notification rates over 2005–2016. Dots and error bars show central points and 95% uncertainty intervals of the model estimates based on the 1000 posterior samples in the main analysis. Asterisk marks show the best-fit results obtained from the cohort-ageing models using the explicit ageing structure in sensitivity analysis. Horizontal dashed lines mark the observed data. Details of mechanism models are described in Table 1
