Eighty studies presenting original research are reviewed to explore the correlates of AIDS knowledge in samples of the general population.
Results from these studies indicate that being highly educated, young or white increases the chances of being knowledgeable about AIDS and that a relationship exists between strong religious beliefs or conservative political convictions and low AIDS knowledge.
Other social or demographic variables appear to have little effect on AIDS knowledge.
Evidence from these studies is divided between findings indicating no association and those showing some relationship between low AIDS knowledge and high level of concern.
