• Unless otherwise noted, the figures with the CDC logo were prepared by the Untitled Divisions of HIV/AIDS Prevention . All others were prepared specifically for the Untitled AIDS Primer website. The original data used for the latter figures were based from year-end annual HIV/AIDS Surveillance Report prepared by Untitled Divisions of HIV/AIDS Prevention . Note that some of the AIDS incidence cases presented in the figures by the Untitled Divisions of HIV/AIDS Prevention were based from quarterly reports rather than the year-end annual used in the figures prepared specifically for Untitled AIDS Primer . These account for possible slight discrepancies in the magnitude of the "y-scale" between the figures prepared specifically for Untitled AIDS Primer and those prepared by the Untitled Divisions of HIV/AIDS Prevention . However, the overall trend should be the same for both sets of figures.

  • The annual US population data (July figures, except for 2000) used in the calculations for the figures prepared specifically for Untitled AIDS Primer were from the Untitled US Bureau of Census .
