– Quantity zero.

1

Based on cases reported to CDC from the beginning of the epidemic (1981) through June 30, 2008.

2

Numbers are point estimates that result from adjustments for reporting delays to AIDS case counts. The estimates do not include adjustments for incomplete reporting. Data are provisional. See Appendix I, AIDS Surveillance.

3

Total for all years includes 7,099 persons of unknown race or multiple races, 0 persons of unknown sex. All persons totals were calculated independent of values for subpopulations. Consequently, sums of subpopulations may not equal totals for all persons.

4

Includes Asian and Pacific Islander legacy cases.

5

Persons of Hispanic origin may be of any race. See Appendix II, Hispanic origin.

6

Percents may not sum to 100% due to rounding and because persons of unknown race and Hispanic origin are included in totals.

NOTES: See Appendix II, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), for discussion of AIDS case reporting definitions and other issues affecting interpretation of trends. Data are for the 50 states and the District of Columbia. This table replaces surveillance data by year of report in previous editions of Health, United States.
