Annual Rates of Hospitalization With a Diagnosis of HIV/AIDS Among Persons Aged ≥45 Years, by Sex -- National Hospital Discharge Survey, United States, 1997-2007


Abbreviation: HIV/AIDS = human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

* Per 10,000 population.

† Annual hospitalizations estimated from hospital discharges during 1997-2007 with any-listed HIV/AIDS diagnoses codes 042 and V08 using the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification. Population estimates for 1997-1999 are based on U.S. Census Bureau civilian population estimates as of July 1, 1997-1999. Population estimates for 2000-2007 were calculated using U.S. Census Bureau 2000-based postcensal civilian population estimates.

From 1997 to 2007, a substantially higher rate of men than women aged ≥45 years were hospitalized with a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS. Hospitalization rates for men in this age group increased from 7.7 per 10,000 in 1997 to 14.8 in 2007; rates for women in this age group increased from 1.9 per 10,000 in 1997 to 4.9 in 2007.
