aIncludes estimates of the number of inmates with confirmed AIDS for Georgia, Louisiana, and Oklahoma in 2005 and 2006; for Missouri and Nevada in 2005; and for Delaware, Virginia, Idaho, and New Mexico in 2006.
bIn states that did not report confirmed AIDS cases, estimates were made by applying to the total the percentages by type of HIV infection from the most recent year for which data were available. For each year, estimates do not include data from states that did not report sufficient data on HIV/AIDS cases.
cPercentages exclude inmates in jurisdictions that did not report type of HIV/AIDS infection.
dThe number of confirmed AIDS cases in California was estimated by applying the 2002 percentage to the 2006 number of HIV-positive inmates.
