To determine sociodemographic risk factors associated with HIV-1 infection in a rural Ugandan population.
A population-based survey.
All adult residents (aged >=13 years) in a cluster of 15 neighbouring villages of the Masaka District of south-west Uganda were invited to participate in a sociodemographic and serological survey.
Questions relating to sexual behaviour were asked separately in an accompanying case-control study.
Socioeconomic data and an unambiguous HIV-1 serostatus were obtained by house-to-house survey for 3809 (72%) of the adult population.
The association between serostatus and the following variables were analysed: age, sex, marital status, tribe, religion, education, occupational group, place and frequency of travel and recent history of sexually transmitted disease.
