    • Description:
      The AIDS Public Information Data Set is computer software designed to run on a Microsoft Windows microcomputer, and contains information abstracted from acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) cases reported in the United States. The data set is created each year by the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention, National Center for HIV, STD, and TB Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and contains information extracted from CDC’s national AIDS surveillance data base. Suggested citation: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. AIDS Public Information Data Set, December, 2002.

      In December 1995, the software was modified to add data from all metropolitan areas with 500,000 or more population, for metropolitan areas with 100,000 or more population from selected states, and for individual counties or health districts from selected states. To protect the confidentiality of the data, a number of variables were removed from the data set: month of death, survival time, central versus outlying portion of metropolitan areas, reporting delay adjustments for death dates, and information on individual AIDS-indicator conditions. The December 1996 edition added information on patient vital status. The December 1998 edition added percentage calculation to each tabulation. Additional information is contained in the on-line help files.

      The AIDS Public Information Data Set contains data in two formats. The first format consists of a rectangular data file of 16 variables extracted from CDC’s national AIDS data base. One-way and two-way cross tabulations of any of these variables can be displayed on your computer screen. The second format consists of a series of state, metropolitan statistical area (MSA), and county/health district tables, containing information on eight variables included in the rectangular data file plus a location variable. There is one set of tables for the entire United States, one set for each state, one set for each MSA, and one set for each county/health district. The rectangular data file, without the state or MSA tables, is also available as an ASCII data file.
