Numbers and rates of diagnoses of HIV infection in the U.S., in relation to social determinants of health (SDH), are presented in the CDC HIV Surveillance Report, Social Determinants of Health among Adults with Diagnosed HIV Infection in 13 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, 2015. The six SDH indicators include federal poverty status; education; median household income; employment; health insurance coverage; and vacant housing. The SDH data presented are the result of the linkage of geocoded HIV diagnosis data (at the census tract level) to SDH indicator variables.
