HIV/AIDS Surveillance Report: U.S. HIV and AIDS Cases Reported through December 2001. Year-End Edition.
HIV/AIDS Surveillance Report, v13 n2 2001
This report presents tables on: persons reported to be living with HIV infection and AIDS, by area and age group; AIDS cases and annual rates and HIV infection cases, by area and age group; male and female adult/adolescent annual AIDS and HIV infection rates; AIDS and HIV cases by age group, exposure category, and sex; male and female adult/adolescent AIDS and HIV infection cases, by exposure category and race/ethnicity; AIDS cases in adolescents and young adults, by sex and exposure category; pediatric AIDS and HIV infection cases, by exposure category and race/ethnicity; adult/adolescent AIDS cases by single and multiple exposure categories; and adult/adolescent AIDS cases among Hispanics, by exposure category and place of birth. The report also presents tables on AIDS incidence, AIDS incidence trends, trends in persons living with AIDS, and trends in deaths of persons living with AIDS. Findings indicate that in 1996, sharp declines in AIDS incidence occurred for the first time. From 1988-99, declines in AIDS incidence began to level off. Essentially no change occurred from 1999-01. AIDS prevalence has increased steadily over time. The addition of New York HIV data substantially affected the number and characteristics of HIV cases described in the report. (SM)
