Thanks for your question.
The best data on this topic comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/stats/hasr1402/table12.htm). Their website has a wealth of HIV-related health statistics.
The CDC estimates that at the end of 2002, there were about 530,000 persons living with HIV in the US. Of these about 385,000 persons have an AIDS diagnosis.
