*** Numbers are estimates after adjustments for reporting delays. Point estimates are presented for reproducibility of the data.

#Percentages may not total 100 because of rounding.

## Persons of races other than black and white were included under "other/unknown" because estimates were too small for meaningful analysis.

### Column totals include missing/other for some categories (e. g., missing sex). Persons infected through receipt of blood or blood products are included under other/unreported risk.
