HIV Surveillance slide 1

Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention scientific staff drafted these to highlight some of the most important data. In this notes area of the PowerPoint slides, each slide contains the title (with the variables selected), some contextual information, and links to additional data and information on the topic.

Note: Data displayed are for individuals 13 years of age or older, and therefore may not reflect the numbers and rates provided in the HIV Surveillance Reports which include data for children..

All of the NCHHSTP AtlasPlus maps are choropleth maps, which use sequential colors (e.g., light blue to dark blue) to display data that progress from low to high values. Typically, one uses light colors for low data values and dark colors for high data values.

The NCHHSTP AtlasPlus is an online, interactive tool that gives you the power to analyze, map, and create tables using HIV, viral hepatitis, STD, and TB data that are reported to CDC.

Using the NCHHSTP AtlasPlus, you can do the following:

  • Create custom maps and bar graphs using HIV, viral hepatitis, STD, or TB data (NCHHSTP AtlasPlus has 15 disease variables to explore);
  • View a list of diagnoses for most recent year and change from the previous year;
  • Create 2 side-by-side maps or charts (e.g., 2 diseases, 2 race/ethnicity groups, or 2 age groups);
  • Display changes over time and patterns across the United States (NCHHSTP AtlasPlus has 16 years of data for most variables);
  • Generate Charts:
    • Line graphs by year
    • Pie charts for sex
    • Bar charts for age, race/ethnicity, transmission category (HIV), country of birth (TB)
    • Bar charts for state and country; and,
  • Download data and export graphics.

HIV Surveillance slide 3

HIV diagnoses, 2016 — United States and 5 dependent areas, by state/area

From 2011 through 2015, the annual number and rate of diagnoses of HIV infection among adults and adolescents remained stable in the United States and 5 dependent areas; in 2016, 39,782 persons were diagnosed with HIV infection. As seen in the map, the highest rates were in the southern and northeastern regions of the United States, Nevada and in Puerto Rico.

Slide 4


HIV Surveillance slide 4

HIV diagnoses attributed to male-to-male sexual contact, 2016 — United States and 5 dependent areas, by state/area

In 2016, diagnosed HIV infection attributed to male-to-male sexual contact (including persons with infection attributed to male-to-male sexual contact and injection drug use) accounted for approximately 70% of diagnosed HIV infections in the United States. As seen in the map, the highest number of cases were in the eastern United States, Texas, Illinois, and California.

Slide 5


HIV Surveillance slide 5

HIV diagnoses attributed to heterosexual contact, 2016 — United States and 5 dependent areas, by state/area

In 2016, diagnosed HIV infection attributed to heterosexual contact accounted for approximately 24% of diagnosed HIV infections in the United States. As seen in the map, the highest number of cases were in the eastern United States, Texas, and California.

Slide 6


HIV Surveillance slide 6

HIV diagnoses attributed to injection drug use, 2016 — United States and 5 dependent areas, by state/area

In 2016, diagnosed HIV infection attributed to injection drug use (including persons with infection attributed to injection drug use and male-to-male sexual contact) accounted for approximately 9% of diagnosed HIV infections in the United States. As seen in the map, the highest number of cases were in the eastern United States, Texas, and California.

Slide 7


HIV Surveillance slide 7

HIV diagnoses among Whites, 2016 — United States and Puerto Rico, by state

In 2016, white adults and adolescents made up approximately 77% of the population of the United States but accounted for 26% of diagnoses of HIV infection. As seen in the map, the highest rates were in the southern and western regions of the United States.

Slide 8


HIV Surveillance slide 8

HIV diagnoses among blacks/African Americans, 2016 — United States and Puerto Rico, by state

In 2016, the overall rate of diagnoses of HIV infection for black/African American adults and adolescents was 52.9 per 100,000 population in the United States. The rates of diagnoses of HIV infection for black/African American adults and adolescents ranged from 0.0 per 100,000 population in Montana and Wyoming to 115.8 per 100,000 population in Maine. The District of Columbia (i.e., Washington, DC) is a city; use caution when comparing the HIV diagnosis rate in DC with the rates in states

Slide 9


HIV Surveillance slide 9

HIV diagnoses among Hispanic/Latino adults and adolescents, 2016 — United States and Puerto Rico, by state

In 2016, Hispanic/Latino adults and adolescents made up 18% of the population of the United States but accounted for 25% of diagnoses of HIV infection. As seen in the map, the highest rates were in the southern and northeastern regions of the United States and North Dakota.

Slide 10


HIV Surveillance slide 10

AIDS prevalence among males, year-end 2015 — United States and 5 dependent areas, by state

At the end of 2015, adult and adolescent males represented approximately 76% of the adults and adolescents living with HIV infection ever classified as stage 3 (AIDS) in the United States. As seen in the map, the highest rates are in the southern and northeastern regions of the United States, California and Puerto Rico.

Slide 11


HIV Surveillance slide 11

AIDS prevalence among females, year-end 2015 — United States and 5 dependent areas, by state

At the end of 2015, adult and adolescent females represented approximately 24% of the adults and adolescents living with HIV infection ever classified as stage 3 (AIDS) in the United States. As seen in the map, the highest rates are in the southern and northeastern regions of the United States and Puerto Rico.

Disclaimer: This is a user-generated report. The findings and conclusions are those of the user and do not necessarily represent the views of the CDC.

Query and graphics are based on state or county-level HIV surveillance data. Data may include a combination of the following: HIV or AIDS diagnoses, HIV or AIDS deaths, or HIV or AIDS prevalence; by area, year, race/ethnicity, sex, age group, and transmission category; shown in numbers and rates. The numbers and rates of HIV or AIDS are based on data from 56 areas (50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) in which laws or regulations require confidential reporting by name for adults and adolescents with confirmed diagnoses of HIV infection. Data for the Republic of Palau are not currently included in the Atlas. Numbers adjusted for reporting delays are no longer presented, and rates are based on the unadjusted numbers. However, the numbers by transmission category are still adjusted through multiple imputation techniques to account for missing information. Diagnoses data for the year 2016 are preliminary and based on 6 months reporting delay; therefore, trend data should only be viewed through the year 2014 to allow sufficient time (at least 12 months) for reporting of case information to accurately assess trends. Prevalence data prior to 2010 are based on residence at diagnosis; prevalence data from 2010 to present are based on most recent known address. Death data are based on residence at death. Data displayed are for individuals 13 years of age or older, and therefore may not reflect the numbers and rates provided in the 2016 HIV Surveillance Report which includes data for children.
