AIDS risk behaviors among late middle-aged and elderly Americans : the National AIDS Behavioral Survey.
Although 10% of all acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) cases diagnosed in the United States have been among Americans aged 50 years of age or older, little attention has been devoted to understanding AIDS risk-taking behaviors among middle-aged or older Americans.
This study describes the prevalence of AIDS risk among Americans aged 50 years of age or older.

We present data from the National AIDS Behavioral Surveys, two large cross-sectional national surveys taken in 1990-1991.
