Rates of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) diagnoses by race/ethnicity and nativity/immigrant status, 46 US states and 5 US territories, 2007–2010. Source: Prosser AT, Tang T, Hall HI. HIV in persons born outside the United States, 2007–2010, [17]. The relevant population denominator data are from the 2008–2010 American Community Survey. Estimated HIV numbers resulted from statistical adjustment that accounted for missing country of birth reporting delays and missing risk factor information, but not for incomplete reporting. For further details, see Prosser et al. [15]. Hispanics/Latinos can be of any race.
