Recent studies suggest very high human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection rates in some populations of younger homosexual men, but these studies may represent only particularly high-risk populations.
The current study obtained population-based data on the HIV epidemic in young homosexual/bisexual men.
A household survey of unmarried men 18 through 29 years of age involved a multistage probability sample of addresses in San Francisco.
A follow-up interview and HIV test for men who were HIV negative at baseline were completed ; the median follow-up was 8.9 months.
