AIDS Statistics

Where can I find statistics on HIV and AIDS?

The "Resources by Topic" section of the NPIN Web site has a Statistics/Trends topic page containing a comprehensive collection of NPIN resources on statistics.

U.S. Statistics

  • The CDC CDC Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP) has a section on Basic Statistics that provides HIV/AIDS statistics in a manageable format. An excellent source for students.

  • HIV/AIDS Surveillance Report is a semi-annual analysis of statistics reported to the CDC by various state and territorial departments of health. The report presents figures on HIV infection and AIDS cases by age, exposure category, gender, age at diagnosis, and race or ethnic group. Results of investigation of AIDS cases with undetermined risk are included. Technical notes discuss the surveillance and reporting of AIDS, exposure categories, and trends in HIV incidence.

    To be placed on the mailing list for future editions call the CDC National Prevention Information Network at 1-800-458-5231.

    Current and back issues may found in the NPIN FTP site.

  • CDC WONDER provides query access to about 40 text-based and numeric databases. Users can request data for any disease and demographic group by submitting queries against available data sets.

    CDC WONDER also provides free-text search facilities and document retrieval for several important text data sets, including the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) from 1982 to the present, and CDC Prevention Guidelines.

  • The U.S. Census Bureau is the preeminent collector and provider of timely, relevant, and quality data about the people and economy of the United States. HIV/AIDS information available includes: population projections incorporating AIDS, an HIV/AIDS surveillance database, summary HIV-1 seroprevalence, and HIV/AIDS surveillance maps.

  • The CDC National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) provides accurate, relevant, and timely statistical information related to health in the U.S., covering health status; lifestyle; and exposure, onset, and diagnosis of acute and chronic illnesses. The Center offers numerous HIV/AIDS-related materials, including data from the annual National Health Interview Survey. Information is available in print, on tapes, on floppy disks, and on CD-ROM, all of which are sold to the public.

International Statistics

International HIV/AIDS statistics can be obtained primarily from the World Health Organization (WHO) Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, as well as from the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). Statistics are available in a variety of formats.

WHO publishes the Weekly Epidemiological Record, which twice a year lists global HIV/AIDS statistics.

U.S. State Statistics

Each State Health Department has an "Office of AIDS", which is a source of state and local statistical information. Go to the NPIN Related Links page for links to state health departments.
