To assess directly the extent of under-reporting of AIDS cases to the National AIDS surveillance system.
All AIDS cases diagnosed from 1 January 1482 to 1 August 1484 in Riverside Health Authority were identified from a local register of HIV infection and cross-checked against records of AIDS cases reported to the national AIDS surveillance system.
Riverside Health Authority, London, UK, Main outcome measures: An estimate of under-reporting was made by identifying both the number of AIDS cases that had not been reported and the number of AIDS cases reported after August 1484 (allowing for reporting delay).
Changes in the timeliness, 1482-1984, of AIDS reporting by Riverside physicians were measured by comparing reporting delay (time between diagnosis and report) and the proportion of AIDS cases reported more than a year after diagnosis (non-reports).
