Contents of this web Page:  This subject is important s through this we get actual number of HIV patients and potential carriers of HIV. HIV Statistics is an important way to predict the disaster due to HIV in nearest future. 

Introduction: HIV Statistics is very important to be correct. If we use to add or detract facts from that soon the project of eradicating HIV will become a dream only. But now days many corners of health - including organizations are giving fake pictures. Millions of dollars worth misappropriation is being done in several organizations of health and medicines. To hide them these people use to project false statistics. So after a long time HIV Statistics will be a corrupted one. One must make sure this will not happen in the case of any disease including HIV.

More Information On This Subject: HIV Statistics are always under change so we add some latest ones- also will be subjected to changes

 AIDS diagnoses and deaths

In June 1981, the first cases of what is now known as AIDS were reported in the USA. During the 1980s, there were rapid increases in the number of AIDS cases and deaths of people with AIDS. Cases peaked with the 1993 expansion of the case definition1, and then declined. The most dramatic drops in both cases and deaths began in 1996, with the widespread use of combination antiretroviral therapy. 

Since 2000 the annual numbers of AIDS diagnoses have been relatively constant, with an estimated 37,852 in 2006. In total, an estimated 1,014,797 people have been diagnosed with AIDS in America. 

The death rate among people with AIDS has also remained relatively stable in recent years; there were an estimated 14,627 deaths in 2006. Since the beginning of the epidemic, an estimated 565,927 people with AIDS have died in the USA. 

Who is affected by AIDS?
During the 1990s, the epidemic shifted steadily toward a growing proportion of AIDS cases among black people and Hispanics and in women, and toward a decreasing proportion in MSM, although this group remains the largest single exposure group. Black people and Hispanics have been disproportionately affected since the early years of the epidemic. In absolute numbers, blacks have outnumbered whites in new AIDS diagnoses and deaths since 1996, and in the number of people living with AIDS since 1998. 

During 2006 there were an estimated 38 paediatric AIDS diagnoses, compared to 195 in 1999 and 896 in 1992. The decline in paediatric AIDS incidence is associated with more HIV testing of pregnant women and the use of antiretroviral drugs such as zidovudine (AZT) by HIV-infected pregnant women and their newborn infants. 

The age group 35-49 years accounted for 52% of all AIDS cases diagnosed in 2006. Nearly three-quarters of all people who have died with AIDS did not live to the age of 45. 

HIV statistics
At the end of 2006, the CDC estimates that there were 509,681 people living with HIV/AIDS in the 38 areas that have a history of confidential name-based HIV reporting, based on reported diagnoses and deaths2. However, the total number of people living in the USA with HIV/AIDS is thought to be between 1,039,000 and 1,185,0003. The discrepancy between these figures is due to several factors including: 

confidential name-based reporting of HIV diagnoses has not yet been implemented in all states4 
anonymous tests, including home tests, are excluded from case reports 
one in every four people living with HIV has not even had their infection diagnosed, let alone reported.5 
During 2006, an estimated 36,817 new diagnoses of HIV infection were reported from the 38 areas with a history of confidential name-based reporting, a number that has remained relatively stable since 2001. Of these cases, 73% were among adult or adolescent males, 26% were among adult or adolescent females, and less than 1% were among children under 13 years of age. Recent HIV reports represent a mixture of people with recent infection and others who may have been infected in the past but are only now being diagnosed. 

Interpreting HIV & AIDS statistics for the USA
In order to monitor the spread of the American epidemic and to assess the need for services and resources, there is a need for accurate surveillance. In the USA, statistics on both HIV and AIDS are collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and published in an annual report. The latest report was published in March 2008, and contains data up to the end of 2006. 

The CDC surveillance report includes data on the number of people diagnosed with AIDS, the number living with AIDS and the number of people with AIDS who have died. Such AIDS statistics include not only the 50 states and the District of Columbia but also Puerto Rico, Guam, the US Pacific Islands and the US Virgin Islands. However, around 97.5% of the total number of people living with AIDS reside within the 50 states or the District of Columbia. 

In recent years, the use of antiretroviral therapy has slowed the progression of HIV in many infected persons and hence contributed to a decline in AIDS incidence. This means that AIDS surveillance data are less able to represent trends in the incidence of HIV infection or the impact of the epidemic on the health-care system. In response, more states are now implementing HIV case reporting. This enables state and local areas to better estimate the size of the population living with HIV/AIDS and to predict the services and resources needed. 

The CDC reports HIV diagnoses and the number of people living with HIV, using only data collected through confidential name-based reporting. By the end of 2006, confidential name-based reporting of adult and child HIV cases had been implemented by 45 states plus Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands and the US Virgin Islands. Of these 50 areas, only 38 have been reporting since at least 2003. 

---------------------------------------------------

America's black and Hispanic communities have been

disproportionately affected by HIV and AIDS. In total, more AIDS 
cases have been diagnosed among black people than among whites. 

During 2006, 49% of all new HIV diagnoses and 49% of new AIDS diagnoses were in black people. In recent years the numbers of HIV diagnoses have remained relatively stable in most ethnic groups, apart from an increase among Asians/Pacific Islanders. 

Male-to-male sexual contact probably caused the majority (66%) of infections in white people living with AIDS. An additional 13% of white people were exposed through injection drug use, 11% through high-risk heterosexual contact and 8% through both male-to-male sexual contact and injection drug use. Among black people living with AIDS, male-to-male sexual contact, high-risk heterosexual contact and injection drug use each account for around 30% of infections.

Notes
The latest statistics on AIDS & HIV in the USA were published in March 2008 by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The next data are due November 2008. 

There is often a delay between the time of diagnosis of HIV or AIDS, or the time of death, and the time at which the event is reported. Moreover, this delay may differ among different categories of people. For this reason the CDC estimates the number of diagnoses, deaths and people living with HIV or AIDS by adjusting for reporting delays, taking into account the differences between categories. The CDC also redistributes cases into exposure categories if none was initially reported. No adjustment is made for incomplete reporting. On this page, all numbers are CDC estimates. 

On this page "adults and adolescents" are defined as persons aged 13 years or more. The term "exposure category" refers to the most probable route of transmission of HIV infection. The term "male-to-male sexual contact" includes gay men, bisexual men and some men who consider themselves to be neither gay nor bisexual. The "high-risk heterosexual contact" category comprises persons who report specific heterosexual contact with a person with, or at high risk for, HIV infection (e.g., an injection drug user). This does not include adults and adolescents born in, or who had sex with someone born in, a country where heterosexual transmission was believed to be the main mode of HIV transmission, unless they meet the criteria stated in the previous sentence. 

The HIV statistics presented on this page include only the 33 states with a history of confidential name-based HIV reporting, as listed in our USA AIDS Statistics Summary. The AIDS statistics include all 50 states of the USA and the District of Columbia.
