(1) Cases reported to the MDH, assumed to be alive, and currently residing in Minnesota as of 12/31/03.
(2) HIV/AIDS prevalence rate calculated by dividing the total number of prevalent cases in a stratum (e.g. persons aged 20-24 years) by the estimated population for that stratum and multiplying by 100,000. Population estimates are based on 2000 U.S. Census data.
(3) Residence information missing for 22 persons living with HIV and 0 persons living with AIDS.
(4) Age missing for 8 persons living with HIV and 0 persons living with AIDS.
Suburban = Seven-county metropolitan area except Minneapolis & St. Paul (Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin (except Minneapolis), Ramsey (except St. Paul), Scott, and Washington counties). Greater Minnesota = Remaining 80 counties outside of the seven-county metropolitan area.
Numbers exclude federal and private prisoners, but include 91 state prisoners and 65 refugees in the HIV-Positive Refugee Resettlement Program.
Percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding.

(1) Cases reported to the MDH, assumed to be alive and currently residing in Minnesota as of 12/31/03.
(2) African-born Blacks are reported separately from other Blacks (born in the U.S. or elsewhere).
MSM = Men who have sex with men. IDU = Injecting drug use. Heterosexual = For males: heterosexual contact with a female known to be HIV+, an injecting drug user, or a hemophiliac/blood product or organ transplant recipient. For females: heterosexual contact with a male known to be HIV+, bisexual, an injecting drug user, or a hemophiliac/blood product or organ transplant recipient. Perinatal = Mother to child HIV transmission. Other = Hemophilia patient/blood product or organ transplant recipient. Unspecified = Cases who did not acknowledge any of the risks listed above. No Interview = Cases who refused to be, could not be or have not yet been interviewed.
(3) HIV/AIDS prevalence rate calculated by dividing the total number of prevalent cases in a stratum (e.g. White, non-Hispanic) by the estimated population for that stratum and multiplying by 100,000. Population estimates are based on 2000 U.S. Census data. Accurate population estimates for Black, African-born persons living in Minnesota are unavailable – anecdotal (50,000) and 2000 U.S. Census data (35,188) ) were used to create the range of rates reported for African-born persons. The population estimate for Black, African-American persons (167,784) was calculated by subtracting the U.S. Census estimate for African-born persons (35,188) from the total Black population (202,972). Note that this assumes that all African-born persons are Black (as opposed to another race).
Numbers exclude federal and private prisoners, but include 91 state prisoners and 65 refugees in the HIV-Positive Refugee Resettlement Program.
Percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding

(1) Cases reported to the MDH, assumed to be alive and currently residing in a Minnesota county as of 12/31/03.
(2) Residence information missing for 24 persons living with HIV and 0 persons living with AIDS. Total rate is based on all cases in the state
Numbers exclude federal and private prisoners, but include 91 state prisoners and 65 refugees in the HIV-Positive Refugee Resettlement Program. State correctional facilities are located in the following counties: Anoka, Carlton, Chisago, Goodhue, Pine, Rice, Scott, Stearns, and Washington.
(3) HIV/AIDS prevalence rate calculated by dividing the total number of prevalent cases in a stratum (e.g. persons living in Hennepin County) by the estimated population for that stratum and multiplying by 100,000. Population estimates are based on 2000 U.S. Census data. Rates not calculated for counties with fewer than 5 cases.

(1) HIV (non-AIDS) = New cases of HIV infection (excluding AIDS at first diagnosis) diagnosed within a given calendar year. AIDS = All new cases of AIDS diagnosed within a given calendar year. AIDS deaths = Number of deaths known to have occurred among AIDS cases in a given calendar year, regardless of cause.
(2) Numbers include refugees in the HIV-Positive Refugee Resettlement Program diagnosed with AIDS one or more years subsequent to their arrival in the U.S.
Please Note: These numbers refer to events, not individuals. For example, a person diagnosed as an HIV (non-AIDS) case in 1992 and then diagnosed as an AIDS case in 2000 will be counted twice in Table 4, once for each event. Thus, the numbers of HIV (non-AIDS) and AIDS cases cannot be summed over years to obtain cumulative totals. Please refer to the Minnesota HIV Surveillance Report, 2003 New HIV Infections, Table 1 for cumulative totals.
Case numbers exclude federal and private prisoners.
