Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
The AIDS case definition is provided by the CDC. The data are based on the CDC Adult HIV/AIDS Confidential Case Report, Form 50.42A, Rev. 3/2007.
Survival analysis (the estimated proportion of persons surviving longer than a given length of time after diagnosis) is the conventional method of measuring the rate of progression of disease. Data on survival for longer than three years after AIDS diagnosis reflects the recent experience of persons diagnosed with AIDS. This proportion is an indicator of access and adherence to quality care for advanced HIV infection.
Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.
The original baseline and baseline year were revised from 88.0 to 84.0 and from 2002 to 2006, respectively. The target was adjusted from 96.8 to 92.4 to reflect the revised baseline using the original target-setting method.
In 2013, HIV-11 was archived with data because it is more important to focus on the earlier stages of HIV. AIDS is a less meaningful measurement because it takes a long time for HIV to advance to AIDS. AIDS measurements provide more information about what was happening with the epidemic in the past instead of what is happening now.
