(I) Cases reported to the MDH, assumed to be alive, and currently residing in Minnesota as of 12/31/08.
(II) 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.
(III) Residence information missing for 14 persons living with HIV and 8 persons living with AIDS.
(IV) Age missing for 5 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 134 state prisoners and 164 refugees in the HIV-Positive Refugee Resettlement Program and 81 additional refugees/immigrants with HIV infection prior to resettling in Minnesota.
Percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding.

(I) Cases reported to the MDH, assumed to be alive and currently residing in Minnesota as of 12/31/08.
(II) African-born Blacks are reported separately from other Blacks (born in the U.S. or elsewhere). "Other" includes multi-racial persons and persons with unknown race.
(III) 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).
(IV) Hetero, unknown risk - Females who were interviewed and whose only risk is heterosexual contact but who were not able to provide information on the sexual partner's risk.
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, Unspecified = Cases who refused to be, could not be or have not yet been interviewed.
Numbers exclude federal and private prisoners, but include 134 state prisoners and 164 refugees in the HIV-Positive Refugee Resettlement Program and an additional 81 refugees/immigrants with HIV infection prior to resettling in Minnesota.
Percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding.

(I) Cases reported to the MDH, assumed to be alive and currently residing in a Minnesota county as of 12/31/08.
(II) Residence information missing for 14 persons living with HIV and 8 persons living with AIDS. Total rate is based on all cases in the state (n=6,220)
Numbers by county exclude federal, and private prisoners, but include 164 refugees in the HIV-Positive Refugee Resettlement Program and 81 additional refugees/immigrants with HIV infection prior to resettling in Minnesota. Numbers for counties in which a state correctional facility is located, exclude those inmates. The total number of state prisoners is 134. State correctional facilities are located in the following counties: Anoka, Carlton, Chisago, Goodhue, Pine, Rice, Scott, Sherburne, St. Louis, Stearns, and Washington.
(III) 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.

(I) 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, including AIDS at first diagnosis.
AIDS deaths = Number of deaths known to have occurred among MN AIDS cases in a given calendar year, regardless of location of death and cause.
All deaths= Number of deaths known to have occurred in MN among people with HIV infection, regardless of location of diagnosis and cause of death.
(II) Numbers include refugees in the HIV-Positive Refugee Resettlement Program and other refugees/immigrants diagnosed with AIDS 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 1996 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, 2008 New HIV Infections, Table 1 for cumulative totals.
Case numbers exclude federal and private prisoners.

(I) CDC 1993 AIDS definition used for all cases.
(II) Cases known to be dead (by any cause) as of 12/31/2008. Reporting of deaths is incomplete.
(III) Case-fatality rate is calculated by dividing the number of cases known to be dead by those diagnosed in a given interval and multiplying by 100.
Numbers exclude federal and private prisoners, but include state prisoners and refugees in the HIV-Positive Refugee Resettlement Program diagnosed with AIDS subsequent to their arrival in the U.S.
