Back to HIV/AIDS.

*This question was asked only of respondents (<65 yrs.) who reported having ever been tested for HIV within the last 12 MONTHS.

^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.
