In 1991 the incidence of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in the United States was 31.6 per 100 000 population among Hispanics and 11.8 per 100 000 among non-Hispanic Whites.
The purpose of this study was to further describe the AIDS epidemic among Hispanics by examining differences in risk factors among different Hispanic group (as defined by birthplace).
AIDS cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from 1988 through 1991 were reviewed.
For men, except for those born in Puerto Rico, the predominant exposure category was male-male sex.
