To describe the demographic patterns of blood transfusion in the United States, the authors analyzed the cumulative incidence rate of transfusion-associated acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) (total cases reported from June 1981 through May 1993 per million population) by sex, race/ethnicity, age (at transfusion), and geographic area.
Except for a high rate in infants, the rate increased with age, peaking at ages 55-64 years in men and at 65-74 years in women.
Overall, the rate in males was 1.7 times that in females.
By age, the rate in males was significantly higher than that in females only at ages 0-4 years and 45-84 years, when the rate in males was 2-3 times that in females.
Overall, the rates in blacks and Hispanics were twice the rate in non-Hispanic whites.
