Leading Health Indicators are a subset of Healthy People 2020 objectives selected to communicate high-priority health issues.
Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
Data are based on the CDC adult HIV/AIDS confidential case report, Form 50.42A, Rev. 3/2007, and extended back-calculation methods.
The HIV case definition used by the HIV Surveillance system is provided by CDC. Data are adjusted for reporting delays. National HIV prevalence and the proportion of persons who are aware of their infection is estimated through extended back-calculation.
Estimated numbers of persons living with HIV infection at the end of the given year. Estimates were derived by using extended back-calculation on HIV and AIDS data for persons aged 13 years and older at diagnosis from 46 states that have had confidential name-based HIV infection reporting since at least January 2007 and on AIDS data from 5 areas (Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Vermont, and the District of Columbia).
Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.
The baseline was revised in 2013 from 80.6 percent of percent of persons aged 13 years and older living with HIV who were aware of their HIV infection (2006) to 80.9 percent (2006) due to reporting delays.
