(1) HIV Infection = New cases of HIV infection (both HIV (non-AIDS) and AIDS at first diagnosis) diagnosed within a given calendar year. 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.
(2) The cumulative rate is calculated by dividing the cumulative number of cases by the estimated state population and multiplying by 100,000. Rates for individual calendar years were calculated using 2000 U.S. Census population data (2000-2003) and 1993-1999 population estimates were calculated using interpolation between U.S. Census 1990 data and U.S. Census 2000 data.
Please Note: The sum of HIV (non-AIDS) cases and AIDS cases will be greater than the number of cases of HIV Infection in a given year. The difference occurs because, unlike the HIV Infection category, the AIDS category includes both cases that are AIDS at first diagnosis as well as those cases that progress from HIV (non-AIDS) to AIDS during the year (see above definitions).
Numbers and rates exclude federal and private prisoners and refugees in the HIV-Positive Refugee Resettlement Program.

(1) HIV infection includes all new cases of HIV infection (both HIV (non-AIDS) and AIDS at first diagnosis) among Minnesota residents in 2003.
(2) 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.
(3) Rates calculated using U.S. Census 2000 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).
(4) U.S. Census 2000 data necessary to calculate race-specific rates (specifically a breakdown of the state population by "Race alone or in Combination with one or more races" by gender) have not yet been released for Minnesota. When these data become available this table will be updated.
Numbers exclude federal and private prisoners and refugees in the HIV-Positive Refugee Resettlement Program.
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; birth may have occurred in a previous year. 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.

NOTE: Cases of perinatally-acquired HIV/AIDS were only included in the table if the child's residence at the time of birth was reported as Minnesota.
(1) Transmission of HIV from mother to child during pregnancy, at birth, and/or during breastfeeding.
(2) African-born Blacks are reported separately from other Blacks (born in the U.S. or elsewhere).
(3) Mothers' places of birth include: Africa (3), Asia/Pacific Islands (2), Latin America/Caribbean (2).
(4) The cumulative rate of HIV transmission is calculated by dividing the total number of perinatally-acquired HIV infections by the total number of births in a category and multiplying by 100. Rates calculated only for categories where the cumulative number of births is 30 or greater.
