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 and missing risk-factor information, but not for incomplete reporting.

a Entries include 205 persons whose place of birth is not among those listed and 1,328 persons whose place of birth is unknown.

b Heterosexual contact with a person known to have, or to be at high risk for, HIV infection.

c Includes hemophilia, blood transfusion, perinatal exposure, and risk factor not reported or not identified.

d Because column totals were calculated independently of the values for the subpopulations, the values in each column may not sum to the column total.
