  1. Estimation of the magnitude of the HIV epidemic among homosexual men : utilization of survey data in predictive models.

    Article - En anglais

    A group of 709 randomly selected males aged 18-55 years living in the city of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, were questioned about sexual lifestyle and related behavior.

    A substantial proportion (10%) of these men appeared to be homo- or bisexual.

    Of these homo- and bisexual men, 16.5% were predicted to be HIV seropositive, using their behavioral information in logistic regression models derived from a second study among 506 homo- or bisexual volunteers who were questioned and tested for HIV antibodies as well.

    Generalizing the results of the sample, the magnitude of the homo- and bisexual population in Amsterdam is estimated to be 21,500 (95% confidence interval: 17,000-26,000) of whom 3500 are HIV seropositive.

    This is in agreement with estimations on the basis of AIDS surveillance data.
