a Estimated numbers resulted from statistical adjustment that accounted for reporting delays and missing risk-factor information, but not for incomplete reporting.

b Entries include persons whose place of birth is not among those listed and persons whose place of birth is unknown.

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

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

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