2004 BRFSS Survey Results: Wake County

HIV/AIDS

I'm going to read two statements about HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. After I read each one, please tell me whether you think it is true or false, or if you don't know.
There are medical treatments available that are intended to help a person who is infected with HIV to live longer.*

Back to HIV/AIDS.

^Use caution in interpreting percentages with a numerator of less than 20. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
