Graph showing higher rates of diagnoses of HIV infection in males and in females, particularly in the Black/African American race and ethnicity group.  As far as the group with the lowest rate, Asian males and White females.

Note. Estimated rates resulted from statistical adjustment that accounted for reporting delays, but not for incomplete reporting.

*Hispanics/Latinos can be of any race.
