Estimated Numbers of Persons Living With Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS)

Added By Infochimps

The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 176):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467
0469 0479 0480 0481 0482 0483 0484 0485 0486 0487 0559 0628 0629
1144 1227 1231

This dataset consists of a table of 49 rows and 8 columns.

These numbers do not represent actual cases of persons living with AIDS. Rather, these numbers are point estimates of persons living with AIDS that have been adjusted for reporting delays and for redistribution of cases in persons initially reported without an identified risk. The estimates have not been adjusted for incomplete reporting


  1. Includes persons of unknown or multiple race and of unknown sex.
    Because column totals were calculated independently of the values for the subpopulations,
    the values in each column may not sum to the column total.
  2. Persons who reported multiple racial categories or whose race was unknown are included in the total numbers.
  3. Includes hemophilia, blood transfusion, perinatal and risk not reported or not identified.
  4. Includes hemophilia, blood transfusion, and risk not reported or not identified.
