The Geography of HIV in Dallas County, Texas, 1999-2003

Date: March 30, 2006
Creator: Enwright, Nicholas & Oppong, Joseph R.
Description: This presentation discusses research on the geography of HIV in Dallas County, Texas from 1999 to 2003. Because HIV/AIDS is not uniformly distributed through zip codes in Dallas County, establishing a clear perception of risk areas for HIV in a large metropolitan area will ensure effective and efficient HIV prevention interventions.

The Geography of HIV in Harris County, Texas, 1999-2003

The Geography of HIV in Harris County, Texas, 1999-2003

Date: April 2, 2009
Creator: Jezari, Arianna & Oppong, Joseph R.
Description: This paper discusses research on the geography of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in Harris County, Texas from 1999-2003. Abstract: This research examines the geography of HIV in Harris County, Texas and the factors associated with areas of high prevalence. Zip code-level prevalence rates obtained from the Texas State Department of Health for 1999-2003 is the dependent variable, while education, race/ethnicity, and income taken from the 2000 Census are used as explanatory variables with Spearman's rank correlation analysis. The results suggest that race/ethnicity, level of education, and income have significant relationships with the HIV rate in Harris County Zip codes. Zip codes with a high percentage of African Americans, a high percentage of adults with an education level of eighth grade or less, and a high percentage of people with income below the poverty line, tend to have higher HIV rates.
