NOTE: These tables should be used only for race/ethnicity comparisons. See Table 20 for age-specific cases and rates and Tables 13-15 for total and sex-specific cases and rates. If age or race/ethnicity was not specified, cases were prorated according to the distribution of cases for which these variables were specified. In 2005, HI did not report age and/or race/ethnicity for most cases and their case data and population denominators were excluded. Differences between total cases from this table and others in the report are due to different reporting formats. The 0 to 9 year age group is not shown because some of these cases may not be due to sexual transmission; however they are included in the totals.
