What does this measure?

The number of people living with AIDS, by race/ethnicity, per 100,000 residents.

Why is this important?

AIDS is the final stage of HIV infection. Although there is no cure, new treatments are helping people with HIV and AIDS live longer, and so higher rates may be a reflection of medical improvements as well as higher rates of HIV and AIDS incidence.

How is our region performing?

In 2016, black or African American residents had the highest rate of people living with AIDS per 100,000 residents in our region (391), followed by Hispanic residents (348). The rate for black or African American residents in Monroe County was even higher, at 422, while Livingston and Orleans had high rates among Hispanic residents at 267 and 300, respectively. Rates among white residents were highest in Monroe (72) and lowest in Wyoming (16).

Notes about the data

Figures do not include prisoners, as counts with prisoners increased rates dramatically for counties with correctional facilities. Data for Yates and Schuyler counties were combined starting in 2015. Data for this indicator are expected to be released in the fourth quarter, with a 2-year lag.
