Note. These numbers do not represent reported death counts. Rather, these numbers are point estimates, which result from adjustments of reported death counts. The reported death counts have been adjusted for reporting delays and missing risk-factor information, but not for incomplete reporting.

a From the beginning of the epidemic through 2007.

b Includes Asian/Pacific Islander legacy cases (see Technical Notes).

c Hispanics/Latinos can be of any race.

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

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

f Includes hemophilia, blood transfusion, and risk factor not reported or not identified.

g Includes persons of unknown race or multiple races and persons 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.
