About the Data
Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
Number of new perinatally acquired HIV diagnoses
Data are based on the CDC adult HIV/AIDS confidential case report, Form 50.42A, Rev. 3/2007.
Estimated numbers are the result of statistical adjustment that account for reporting delays, but not for incomplete reporting. Data are for Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino and White persons with a diagnosis of HIV infection regardless of stage of disease at diagnosis.
Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.
