Startling New Map: 92 Percent of New HIV Cases Are in 25 Percent of U.S. Counties
September 24, 2013
These maps from AIDSVu, a group that turns annual HIV infection rates data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) into interactive displays, show exactly where new cases were diagnosed between 2008 and 2011 -- information that the CDC has never mapped before, and which has big implications for public health. ... The maps display cases by county, and in major cities, by zip code; they show that 92 percent of new diagnoses between 2008 and 2011 took place in just 25 percent of U.S. counties (Caplan-Bricker, The New Republic, 9/24).
