Data NotesCounty level data is available from the Epidemiology Section, which does not include any statistical adjustment for reporting delays. Therefore, the state rate is not comparable between the Epidemiology Section and the CDC. The Epidemiology Section periodically updates their rates to include additional reported cases; see HIV/STD Facts and Figures for the most comprehensive data. **Rates are displayed only for counties that have a minimum of 10 new diagnoses. Data for the U.S. is for 2010.
