To evaluate the incidence of HIV infection among men in the Army Reserve Components (RC) in the United States.
A prospective follow-up evaluating HIV seroconversions among men in the RC.
Men who were initially seronegative were followed over time and periodically retested.
The duration of follow-up was measured for each individual.
Date of seroconversion was estimated to be the mid-point between last negative and first positive test.
Demographic characteristics were evaluated for association with seroconversion, and incidence density between 1985 and 1991 was examined.
We followed 733 622 RC men for 1988 622 person-years between 1985 and 1991, and identified 534 seroconversions.
