Section 1 below describes the methods by which AIDS surveillance data were adjusted for reporting delays, the methods used to account for the effect of the 1987 change in the AIDS surveillance definition, and the methods used to examine time trends in adjusted data on AIDS incidence.
Sections 2 and 3 summarize the statistical methods used to estimate cumulative HIV incidence from back-calculation and to predict future AIDS cases, respectively.
Section 4 describes the methods by which HIV-prevalence estimates were derived from estimates of cumulative HIV incidence.
Section 5 contains estimates of length of period of survival after an AIDS diagnosis.
These estimates were used to predict future deaths among persons diagnosed as having AIDS, numbers of persons alive with AIDS, and deaths associated with HIV infection.
