  1. Backcalculation of the number with human immunodeficiency virus infection in the United States.

    Article - En anglais

    The method of backcalculation was applied to national surveillance data on the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in order to estimate the cumulative number of adults with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection as of january 1, 1985 and July 1, 1987.

    A « plausible range » of estimates was constructed which reflected both uncertainty about the AIDS incubation distribution and random variation from selection and fitting of flexible models of the HIV-1 infection curve.

    The authors estimated that, as of 1985, 411,000 to 756,000 persons were infected.
