HIV CT data are used at the local and national levels for research and program monitoring and evaluation purposes. Information on clients is collected by a service provider for each HIV testing episode and then sent to the appropriate health department and checked for completeness and accuracy. This analysis includes test-level HIV CT data from Hispanic and non-Hispanic white adults and adolescents aged > 13 years receiving CT services in 37 states, 5 cities, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands* that submitted complete data.

The following variables were analyzed for tests conducted in 2005: race/ethnicity, sex, age, HIV risk, geographic location of testing, testing site type (clinical, non-clinical, and unspecified location), type of test (anonymous vs. confidential), reported history and result of prior HIV testing, current HIV test result, receipt of test result and posttest counseling, and time to receipt of results and posttest counseling. For this analysis, previously undiagnosed HIV infection was defined as a record for which there was a current positive test result and no self-reported history of a previous positive test. The number of tests among Hispanics was compared to those of non-Hispanic whites, and previously undiagnosed HIV infection was compared among different sub-populations of Hispanics.


*Includes the following state health departments: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.; city health departments: Chicago, District of Columbia, Houston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and San Francisco; and dependent area health departments: Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
