Note. These numbers do not represent reported case counts. Rather, these numbers are point estimates, which result from adjustments of reported case counts. The reported case counts have been adjusted for reporting delays, but not for incomplete reporting. Dashes indicate data not shown because the state has not had laws or regulations requiring confidential name-based HIV infection reporting since at least 2003.
a Florida has confidential name-based HIV infection reporting for only the diagnoses made during July 1997 or later.
b Total number of persons living with HIV infection (not AIDS) includes persons reported from areas with confidential name-based HIV infection reporting who were residents of other states or whose area of residence is unknown. Total number of persons living with AIDS includes persons whose area of residence is unknown. Because column totals were calculated independently of the values for the subpopulations, the values in each column may not sum to the column total.
