This study examined survival trends among the 23,324 cases of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) meeting the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) definition that were diagnosed and reported to the New York City Department of Health from the beginning of the epidemic in 1980 through June 1989.
The survival patterns of 20,760 individuals who survived for at least 1 calendar month beyond diagnosis were analyzed; all survival analyses were truncated at December 1, 1990, 17 months after the last diagnosis.
Persons who died during the same month in which they were diagnosed ( « zero » survivors) were excluded.
