Study Finds That Married Men Are Less Likely to Die of HIV/AIDS
July 15, 2013
Research from the University of California, Riverside (UCR) indicated that married men were significantly less likely to die of HIV/AIDS than divorced or single men. UCR sociology professor Augustine Kposowa investigated effects of marital status on deaths of individuals with HIV/AIDS. Kposowa used recently released data from the U.S. National Longitudinal Mortality Study and the National Death Index to track approximately 763,000 individuals ages 15 years and older between 1983 and 1994. During that time, 410 died of HIV/AIDS.
