Definition
HIV is a condition caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The condition gradually destroys the immune system, which makes it harder for the body to fight infections.

Why do we measure this?
Monitoring new diagnoses of HIV can be used to target prevention and educational programs to affected populations.

Data Note(s)
  • These data represent new diagnoses by year of diagnosis, as of 06/30/2019. The next update is scheduled for July 2020.
  • HIV data are updated each year from 1979 to the most recent reporting year to ensure a case has not been counted more than once. This update is necessary because duplicate cases may occur when persons with an HIV diagnosis move to a different county, state or country.
  • HIV data by Year of Diagnosis reflects any diagnosis meeting the CDC definition of HIV which includes all new diagnoses of HIV (regardless if AIDS at time of diagnosis) with no previous diagnosis of HIV anywhere else in the United States or U.S. territories.
  • AIDS data by Year of Diagnosis reflects any diagnosis meeting the CDC definition of AIDS (regardless where or when HIV was diagnosed) with no previous diagnosis of AIDS anywhere else in the United States or U.S. territories.
  • HIV and AIDS cases by year of diagnosis are NOT mutually exclusive and should NOT be added together.
  • Enhanced laboratory reporting (ELR) laws in 2006 and the expansion of ELR in 2007 led to an artificial peak in new diagnoses of HIV in 2008.
  • DOC/FCI = Department of Corrections / Federal Correctional Institution.
  • Rates for Hispanic and non-Hispanic population became available starting in 2004.
  • Rates are NOT available by Mode of Exposure
  • MSM = Men who have sex with men, IDU = Injection drug use, MSM/IDU = Men who have sex with men and inject drugs, Hetero = Heterosexual, Trans Sex Contact = Transgender Sexual Contact, Other = Other risk.
  • MSM, MSM/IDU and Heterosexual Data excludes Transgender Persons. Due to small numbers, the mode of exposure for Transgender Sexual Contact is only shown on the PLWH page.
  • Chart will display if there are at least three years of data.
  • Multi-year counts are a sum of the selected years, not an average.
  • Quartiles are calculated when data is available for at least 51 counties.
  • MOV - Measure of Variability: Probable range of values resulting from random fluctuations in the number of events. Not calculated when numerator is below 5 or denominator is below 20, or count or rate is suppressed. The MOV is useful for comparing rates to a goal or standard. For example, if the absolute difference between the county rate and the statewide rate is less than the MOV, the county rate is not significantly different from the statewide rate (alpha level = 0.05). When the absolute difference between the county rate and the statewide rate is greater than the MOV, the county rate is significantly different from the statewide rate. MOV should not be used to determine if the rates of two different counties, or the county rates for two different years, are statistically significantly different.
  • Denom - abbreviated for Denominator.
  • Population estimates are not available for persons whose county of residence is unknown. Given this, the denominator and associated rate are not available.
  • * - Indicates the county rate is statistically significantly different from the statewide rate.
